ASSE Announces Fall Protection Program Standard (4/30)

ASSE recently announced the approval of the new American National Standard Institute (ANSI)/ASSE Z359.2-2007 standard. The standard, Minimum Requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program, is the first approved in a series of standards that focus on fall protection and related systems.

The standard, approved by ANSI on April 23, 2007, establishes guidelines and requirements for an employer’s managed fall protection program including policies, duties and training; fall protection procedures; eliminating and controlling fall hazards; rescue procedures; incident investigations; and evaluating program effectiveness.

The purpose of the standard is to help organizations develop and implement a comprehensive managed fall protection program that identifies, evaluates and eliminates, or controls, fall hazards through planning, proper training, proper installation and use of fall protection and rescue systems, and implementation of safe fall protection and rescue procedures.
