So often, when we think of fall protection, we think of PPE. But parsing the various standards and creating a Fall Protection Program—so the equipment can do its job--is daunting to the average employer.
What does it all mean?!
In 2017, the OSHA General Industry Walking-Working Surface Standard was updated, nearly 50 years after its last revision.
In this new language, OSHA clarified and sometimes created requirements for Authorized, Competent, and Qualified persons to inspect and certify PPE and other fall protection equipment.
There are other jurisdictions and consensus standards too—OSHA 1926, ANSI Z359, the EM385—all of these standards detail other requirements for a fall protection program.
