Used properly inconjunction with each other, however, theyform a Personal Fall Arrest System that becomesvitally important to safety on the jobsite andthe overall fall protection program.


4Four Functional Equipment CategoriesFall ArrestAs a general rule, it is recommendedthat a fall arrest systembe used at working heights offour feet or more. This systemconsists of:• anchorage/anchorage connector• body wear (full-body harness)• connecting devicePositioning/Restraint*A positioning/restraint systemis used to hold a worker inplace while allowing ahands-free work environmentat elevated heights and/orrestrict the worker’s movementto prevent reaching a locationwhere a fall hazard exists. Atypical positioning/restraintsystem consists of:• anchorage/anchorage connector• body wear (full-body harnessor body belt)• connecting device(positioning lanyard)Suspension*Suspension systems areused widely in the windowwashing and painting industriesand are designed tolower and support a workerwhile allowing a hands-free workenvironment. A typical suspensionsystem would include:• anchorage/anchorageconnector (anchor bolt,trolley, carabiner, etc.)• body wear (full-bodyharness)• connecting device (workline)• suspension device(bos’n chair)RetrievalThe retrieval system is primarilyused in confined space applicationswhere workers must entertanks, manholes, etc. and mayrequire retrieval from above shouldan emergency occur. A retrievalsystem typically consists of:• anchorage/anchorageconnector (tripod, davit)• body wear (full-body harness)• connecting device (retractablelifeline/retrieval unit)*The positioning and suspension systems are not designed for fall arrest, and therefore a back-up fall arrest system should be used.Occupation/Application LegendProper selection of system components is essential to worker safety. The occupation legend is intendedto serve as a guide to assist users in determining which products are best for which applications.Look for these symbols throughout the catalog!CSA GroupCodes (Canada)Full-Body Harnesses –CSA STANDARD Z259.10-M90Construction Roofing Scaffold IronworkerUtilityUniversalClassifications:A – Fall ArrestingD – Controlled DescentE – Confined SpaceL – Ladder ClimbingP – Work PositioningThis “E” classification can be added to any“A” harnesses if shoulder D-rings are added.IndustrialWarehousePositioning/RestraintPainterTelecommunications

When using a six foot shock-absorbing lanyard and afull-body harness, first add the length of the shockabsorbinglanyard [6 ft. (1.8m)] to the maximum elongationof the shock absorber during deceleration [3-1/2 ft. (1.1m)]to the average height of a worker [6 ft. (1.8m)].2. Then, add a safety factor of 3 ft. (1m) to allow for thepossibility of an improperly fit harness, a taller than averageworker and/or a miscalculation of distance.3. The total, 18-1/2 ft. (5.6m), is the suggested safe fallclearance distance, the height at which you must attachto an anchorage to minimize the risk of contact with alower level.®Miller Splat IndicatorFor a quick and easy alternativeto calculating your fall distance,use the Miller Splat Indicator.• Similar to a plumb bob, simplyattach the device to ananchorage or to the lanyard at the anchoringsnap hook and lower the weight using theattached string.• If the weight strikes a lower level, then ahigher anchorage must be selected.• If a higher anchorage is not accessible,a shorter lanyard or a fall limiter shouldbe used.

34 Developing a Fall Protection Program13Written Fall Protection Program45TrainingUnderstanding Regulations and StandardsApplication of regulatory requirements depends on the specific location, industryand operations of the workplace. In the event of an inspection, the company willbe assessed on how well the operation meets the regulatory requirements of eachparticular job. Employers should obtain copies of the regulations that apply totheir work activities and begin a fall protection regulations file.Hazard IdentificationA well-conceived fall protection program begins with identification of all fall hazardsin the workplace. As a general rule, any time a worker is at a height greater than 4feet (1.2m), a fall hazard exists. Where a fall hazard exists, there are two acceptableoptions: (1) eliminate the hazard, or (2) provide protection against it. Ideally, it isbest to totally eliminate the hazard. Since that is often not possible, however, othermeasures such as the wearing of personal protection equipment (PPE) are required.Following hazard identification, a written program should be developed specifyinghow to deal with each hazard. If standardized safe-work practices and operatingprocedures can eliminate the hazard, then such procedures should be specified.Where hazard elimination is impossible, the plan should state what fall protectionmeasures are to be used, how they are to be used, and who is responsible foroverall supervision and training. This program need not be elaborate, but shouldcover the basic elements of the plan. The program needs to be clearly conveyedand understood by all participants.Product SelectionThe employer must know the types of fall protection products that are available,and decide which would be most suitable for the workplace. Because all workenvironments differ, it is impossible for the manufacturer to determine exactlywhich fall protection products will provide maximum protection for each job. Byunderstanding how fall protection products operate and knowing the differencesin product functions, the employer can select products that are best suited fortheir workers.All workers must be trained in the proper use of fall protection equipment beforeusing any fall protection products. Workers must be able to identify potential fallhazards, determine which products to use in specific work environments, demonstrateproper anchoring procedures, etc. Employees must also learn inspection andmaintenance procedures and the proper wearing of fall protection equipment.

36 Inspection & Maintenance ofa Personal Fall Arrest SystemTo maintain proper service life and high performance,fall protection products should be inspected regularly!Harness (and Body Belt) InspectionTo inspect your harness or body belt, perform the following procedures.1) Webbing – Grasp the webbing with your hands 6 inches (152mm) to 8 inches (203mm) apart. Bend thewebbing in an inverted “U” as shown. The surface tension resulting makes damaged fibers or cuts easier todetect. Follow this procedure the entire length of the webbing, inspecting both sides of each strap. Look forfrayed edges, broken fibers, pulled stitches, cuts, burns, and chemical damage.2) D-Rings/Back Pads – Check D-rings for distortion, cracks, breaks, and rough or sharp edges. The D-ringshould pivot freely. D-ring back pads should also be inspected for damage.3) Attachment of Buckles – Inspect for any unusual wear, frayed or cut fibers, or broken stitching of thebuckle or D-ring attachments.4) Tongue/Grommets – The tongue receives heavy wear from repeated buckling and unbuckling. Inspect forloose distorted or broken grommets. Webbing should not have additional punched holes.5) Tongue Buckles – Buckle tongues should be free of distortion in shape and motion. They should overlapthe buckle frame and move freely back and forth in their socket. Roller should turn freely on frame. Check fordistortion or sharp edges.6) Friction and Mating Buckles – Inspect the buckle for distortion. The outer bars and center bars must bestraight. Pay special attention to corners and attachment points at the center bar.Lanyard InspectionWhen inspecting lanyards, begin at one end and work to the opposite end, slowly rotating the lanyardso that the entire circumference is checked. Additionally, follow the procedures below.1) Hardware –a. Snaps: Inspect closely for hook and eye distortions, cracks, corrosion, or pitted surfaces. The keeper (latch)should seat into the nose without binding and should not be distorted or obstructed. The keeper springshould exert sufficient force to firmly close the keeper. Keeper locks must prevent the keeper from openingwhen the keeper closes.b. Thimbles: The thimble must be firmly seated in the eye of the splice, and the splice should have no looseor cut strands. The edges of the thimble must be free of sharp edges, distortion, or cracks.2) Steel Lanyard – While rotating the steel lanyard, watch for cuts, frayed areas, or unusual wearing patternson the wire. Broken strands will separate from the body of the lanyard.3) Web Lanyard – While bending webbing over a pipe or mandrel, observe each side of the webbed lanyard.This will reveal any cuts or breaks. Swelling, discoloration, cracks, and charring are obvious signs of chemicalor heat damage. Observe closely for any breaks in stitching.4) Rope Lanyard – Rotation of the rope lanyard while inspecting from end-to-end for any fuzzy, worn, brokenor cut fibers. Weakened areas from extreme loads will appear as a noticeable change in original diameter.The rope diameter should be uniform throughout, following a short break-in period.5) Shock Absorber Pack – The outer portion of the pack should be examined for burn holes and tears.Stitching on areas where the pack is sewn to D-rings, belts, or lanyards should be examined for loose strands,rips, and deterioration.6) Shock-Absorbing Lanyard – Shock-absorbing lanyards should be examined as a web lanyard (described initem 3 above). However, also look for the warning flag or signs of deployment. If the flag has been activated,remove this shock-absorbing lanyard from service.CleaningBasic care of all safety equipment will prolong the durable life of the unit and will contribute toward the performanceof its vital safety function. Proper storage and maintenance after use are as important as cleansing the equipment of dirt,corrosives, or contaminants. Storage areas should be clean, dry and free of exposure to fumes or corrosive elements.1) Nylon or Polyester – Remove all surface dirt with a sponge dampened in plain water. Squeeze the sponge dry. Dip the spongein a mild solution of water and commercial soap or detergent. Work up a thick lather with a vigorous back and forth motion; thenwipe with a clean cloth. Hang freely to dry, but away from excessive heat.2) Drying – Equipment should dry thoroughly without close exposure to heat, steam, or long periods of sunlight.
