Brush up on Fall Arrest Systems

Tech Tips - Jan 18

OSHA requires a fall arrest system in a setting where a worker could fall six feet or more. While these standards are well-known in the industry, falls still remain one of the most common workplace incidents.

To keep yourself and your team safe, review these best practices for preventing falls:
  • Set your fall arrest system to prevent free falls greater than 6 feet while also preventing contact with a lower level
  • Arresting force should not exceed 1,800 pounds
  • Always inspect your fall arrest systems for damage, wear or defects before beginning work
Visit OSHA.gov to read their full guidelines for fall arrest systems.
