Triple Play Package
The new Z359.12-2009 and Z359.13-2009 standards will significantly change several integral parts of any worker's personal fall arrest system, including connecting components, personal energy absorbers and energy absorbing lanyards. This session will cover these new standards and address the critical aspects that should be contained in site specific plans. Engineers with expertise in fall protection systems design should also tune in for an overview of the design requirements in the new Z359.6-2009 standard for fall protection systems design in new facility construction.
By attending this session, you can interact with a "trio" of high-caliber Fall Protection/Arrest experts made up of:
- Thomas E. Kramer, P.E., CSP: Tom is the Chair of the Z359.6 Subgroup
- Tim Accursi - Partner, Peakworks; Tim is the Chair of the Z359.12 Subgroup
- Randy Wingfield - President, Gravitec Systems, Inc,; Randy is the overall chair of the Z359 ASC and the Chair of the Z359.13 Subgroup
Upon registering, you will also receive these THREE standards being added to the Code!
- ANSI/ASSE Z359.6-2009 - Safety Requirements for Personal Fall Arrest Systems (PFAS): This Standard is intended for engineers with expertise in designing 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/ASSE Z359.12-2009 - Connecting Components for Personal Fall Arrest Systems: This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, test methods and removal from service of connectors.
- ANSI/ASSE Z359.13-2009 - 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.).

There have also been numerous questions addressing the newly added standards, and how they have been used in the past related to OSHA and the General Duty Clause. We know this standard is used by SH&E Professionals on a consistent basis, and this is always a common question. The link below is to a matrix which includes a collection of examples from 1999 to 2009. You can also get this information from the OSHA stats page, but we put it together in one file.
