ANSI Z359.2-2017 Minimum requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program.

ANSI Scope:

1.1.1 This standard establishes criteria and requirements for an employer’s fall protection program including policies, duties and responsibilities, training survey and identification of fall hazards, fall protection procedures, eliminating or controlling fall hazards, rescue procedures, program implementation, incident investigation and evaluating program effectiveness.

Developing and implementing a comprehensive fall protection program is the most effective tool for employers to: identify, evaluate, eliminate or control fall hazards though planning; ensure proper training of personnel; ensure proper installation and use of fall protection and rescue systems and implement viable fall protection and rescue procedures.

The intent of the fall protection program is that each fall hazard is identified, a control method is selected, workers are trained according to the control method and specific work practice, (how to access, where to anchor, which system to use) is documented through written fall protection and rescue procedures.

This course starts the conversion and the process for your company to begin this procedure. Our content follows this standard from start to finish on developing a program. We will also discuss the importance and cost of not creating a fall protection program. The overall goal of this course is to have you the end user prepared to begin this process of developing a managed fall protection program.

This 24-hour fall Protection class is designed specifically for contractors doing business with the US Navy, NAVFAC, US Army Corps of Engineers and other government agencies that require EM 385 training.
