Fundamentals of Fall Protection/OSHA Regulations
Fall hazards pose a significant risk of serious injury or death for people working at height. OSHA has set safety standards that help increase safety for employees whose jobs require working at heights. A personal fall protection system is critical to worker safety at height.
OSHA compliant personal fall protection systems typically include four components:
Anchorages, as defined by OSHA, are secure fall protection anchor points for attachment of lifelines, lanyards or deceleration devices, and are designed to remain secure under the forces generated during a fall arrest event. Anchorages vary by industry, job, type of installation and structure.
Body support¬ refers to fall protection equipment that directly supports the worker’s weight and maintains the body in a safe position. Worker comfort, fit and ease of use are key considerations in the selection of body support equipment – such as a full body harness – that a worker may need to wear for extended periods during a work day.
