Developing and implementing a comprehensive managed fall protection program is the most effective method to identify, evaluate and eliminate fall hazards through planning. It also ensures proper fall protection training and installation of fall protection systems along with implementation of safe fall protection and rescue procedures. ANSI/ASSE Z359.2-2007, titled "Minimum Requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program," addresses the development and implementation of this detailed program aimed at SH&E professionals and employers with one or more workers exposed to a fall hazard. A comprehensive managed fall protection program is dependent upon several key people, including the Authorized Person, Competent Person, Qualified Person and Program Administrator. Understanding the responsibilities, limitations and training of these players is paramount to the development and success of the program. This presentation will take an in-depth look ANSI/ASSE Z359.2-2007 and examine the roles and training of important personnel.
