OSHA fall protection regulation for general industry stipulates that if a worker is exposed to a fall of 4 feet or greater they must utilize some form of fall protection. The fall hazard can be on a top of a building, suspended from a building, near a skylight, near a loading dock, mining operation, on an airport jet way or any other environment where a fall of 4 feet or greater is present.

The type of system will depend on the environment and work to be performed. Fall protection systems are divided into fall restraint (prevents user from reaching a fall hazard), fall arrest (arrest fall of user in the event of a fall) and suspended access for operating a motorized platform or other suspended equipment.

If there is a fall hazard in the vicinity of where an employee, vendor or contractor must perform work and a 42” parapet or guardrail does not protect the worker for exposure to a fall, then a fall protection system must be installed. This is also the case if suspended access for activities such as window washing is necessary.

Any time a window cleaner must suspend from a building he needs two independent anchor points for every descent he performs.  The spacing of the anchors is critical so as not to subject the window cleaner to a swing fall (pendulum effect) if he has a failure in his primary system.
