OVERVIEW OF FALL PROTECTION STANDARDS

There are multiple factors to consider when implementing a fall protection system. These can include ANSI and OSHA regulations, structural integrity, system usability and more. While we provide as much information as we can via our website, there’s no substitute to having a fall protection expert review your specific application. Speaking with an FLS expert is also the simplest way to be sure all fall safety considerations have been met. Our experts are a ready to answer your fall protection questions.

OSHA Requirements

OSHA standards for worker safety vary depending on application height, access considerations and more. Requirements can be as simple as demarcation of a hazardous area, or as involved as a fully integrated fall-arrest system. FLS professionals will tell you exactly what’s required for your specific application.

Engineering Challenges

For a fall protection system to be safe and effective, it must be able to handle the load of deployment.  FLS engineering professionals make certain safety systems are integrated responsibly, without causing damage, and that in the event of a fall, loads are distributed without compromising the integrity of the surrounding structure.

Usability

A fall protection system won’t be effective if it isn’t easily used, and if employees aren’t properly trained in its operation. FLS systems are user-friendly and we don’t consider a project complete until your employees are thoroughly knowledgeable and comfortable with its operation.

Future Compliance

Standards and regulations are frequently updated. Equipment can require maintenance. FLS takes the guesswork out by offering annual inspections to ensure your systems are in good working order and remain compliant with the latest Federal, State and Local regulations.
