ANSI Z459.1 Standard on Safety Requirements for Rope Access Systems

ANSI Z459 is a new standard, which falls under the Z359 Fall Protection standard and is applicable for use in any environment where ropes are suspended from or connected to a structure or natural feature and used as the primary means of access, egress or support and as the primary means of secondary protection against a fall.

The standard establishes a set of baseline criteria for employers to use in establishing and evaluating rope access systems for work at height.  Rise Rigging endorses the acceptance of this standard in the complex world of safe work at height, regardless of structure type or environment.

This standard can be purchased at the ASSP Store in digital format.
