In July, the American National Standards Institute released a new edition of ANSI/ASSP Z359.14, which establishes the requirements for self-retracting devices for personal fall arrest and rescue systems. During this webinar, Rob Willis from MSA Safety will discuss several key changes in this latest standard and what it means for users of SRDs in the industrial safety space.
