Understanding the ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code
Unfortunately there is a lot of confusion about the application and use of the Z359 Fall Protection Code within the safety community. New standards seem to be coming out every month and users of the documents are confused as to which standard applies to which piece of equipment, how equipment is tested, how equipment is marked, what standards are coming out, if any are incorporated by reference and what they need to do to comply with an ANSI standard. This is compounded by technical duplication of content from Z359.1 and the Fall Protection Code.
This session is designed for Competent Fall Protection Persons. Qualified Persons, Program Administrators, Equipment Purchasers and policy writers or auditors.
