OSHA’s Construction eTool: Personal Fall Arrest Systems offers information on one of many options employers can utilize to protect workers from falls on construction sites and achieve compliance with OSHA requirements. Personal fall arrest systems can be a very effective option for workers who are exposed to vertical drops of 6 feet or more on construction sites.
Employers can access detailed information on OSHA’s Fall Protection Standards, including attachment location, body harness, vertical lifeline/lanyard, webbing, anchorages, horizontal lifeline and connectors as well as an overview of how to use fall arrest systems safely.
