Fall restraint is the use of a work-positioning system to prevent workers from falling from the position in which they are working or a travel-restriction system to prevent workers from traveling to an edge from which they may fall.
Rig positioning devices so that an employee cannot free fall more than 2 feet.
- Make sure positioning device systems are inspected prior to each use for wear, damage, and other deterioration. Remove defective components from service.
- Make sure anchorage points for positioning device systems are capable of supporting two times the intended load or 3,000 pounds.
