ISEA updates fall protection guide

May 17, 2017

Arlington, VA – In response to new regulations and standards, the International Safety Equipment Association has updated its Personal Fall Protection Equipment Use and Selection Guide.

Developed by manufacturers in the organization’s Fall Protection Group, the guide provides information on the inspection, use, maintenance and storage of fall protection equipment. The 30-page document explains how to set up a fall protection program, details the major parts of fall protection systems and advises on the selection of equipment based on industry. It also includes relevant OSHA regulations and U.S. and Canadian consensus standards.

The guide was published in response to OSHA’s updated rule on walking-working surfaces and fall protection, issued in November, and the revised Fall Protection Code released last year by the American National Standards Institute and the American Society of Safety Engineers.
