ASSP Z359.0-2018

Z359 Committee Guidance Document for Definitions and Nomenclature Used in Z359 Fall Protection and Fall Restraint Standards

This document is a compilation of definitions and nomenclature used in the ANSI/ASSE Z359 series of standards for fall protection programs, systems and equipment. It is intended to be a reference, so that standards developers, manufacturers, system designers and specifiers, user organizations and regulators have a common language for important terminology.


ANSI/ASSP Z359.1-2020

The Fall Protection Code

The Fall Protection Code is a set of standards that covers program management; system design; training; qualification and testing; equipment, component and system specifications for the processes used to protect workers at height in a managed fall protection program. This standard identifies those requirements and establishes their role in the Code and their interdependence


ANSI/ASSE Z359.2-2017

Minimum Requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program

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.


ANSI/ASSP Z359.3-2019

Safety Requirements for Lanyards and Positioning Lanyards

Part of the Fall Protection Code. This standard establishes requirements for the design, performance, qualification testing, test methods, marking, instruction, training, maintenance and removal from service of lanyards and positioning lanyards for users within the capacity range of 130 to 310 pounds (59 to 140 kg).


ANSI/ASSE Z359.4-2013

Safety Requirements for Assisted-Rescue and Self-Rescue Systems, Subsystems and Components

Establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, instruction, training, use, maintenance and removal from service of connectors, harnesses, lanyards, anchorage connectors, winches/hoists, descent control devices, rope tackle blocks and self-retracting lanyards with integral rescue capability comprising rescue systems used in preplanned self-rescue and assisted-rescue applications for 1-2 persons.


ANSI/ASSE Z359.6-2016

Specifications and Design Requirements for Active Fall Protection Systems

This standard is intended for engineers who are trained as qualified persons and who have expertise in the design of active fall protection systems. It specifies requirements for the design and performance of complete active fall protection systems, including travel restraint and vertical and horizontal fall arrest systems.


ANSI/ASSP Z359.7-2019

Qualification and Verification Testing of Fall Protection Products

This standard specifies requirements for equipment, facilities, specimens to be sampled and documentation when testing ANSI/ASSP Z359 Fall Protection Code products. This standard commonly addresses the requirements for qualification and verification testing for all ANSI/ASSP Z359 product standards, as required by ANSI/ASSP Z359.1, The Fall Protection Code.


ANSI/ASSP Z359.12-2019

Connecting Components for Personal Fall Arrest Systems

Part of the Fall Protection Code. This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, test methods and removal from service of connectors.


ANSI/ASSE Z359.13-2013

Personal Energy Absorbers and Energy Absorbing Lanyards

This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, instructions, inspection, maintenance and removal from service of energy absorbing lanyards and personal energy absorbers. It is the intention of this standard to require all energy absorbing lanyards and personal energy absorbers to reduce the forces implied on the user to less than 10 G’s (10 times the normal gravitational pull of the Earth). Users must be within the range of 130 to 310 lbs (59 - 140 kg.).


ANSI/ASSP Z359.14-2021

Safety Requirements for Self-Retracting Devices for Personal Fall Arrest and Rescue Systems

This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, qualification testing, markings and instructions, inspections, maintenance and storage, and removal from service of self retracting devices (SRDs) including self-retracting lanyards (SRLs), self-retracting lanyards with integral rescue capability (SRL-Rs), and self-retracting lanyards, personal (SRL-Ps). This standard establishes requirements for SRDs intended for use in personal fall arrest or rescue systems for authorized persons within the capacity range of 130 to 310 pounds (59 to 141kg).
