This industry-created document addresses the proper use and regulatory compliance of personal fall protection (PFP) for aerial work platform (AWP) equipment.
The objectives of this document are to:
- Educate the industry on applicable Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and the industry-recognized and supported American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standards.
- Provide information to assist users and operators during their selection process to identify the most appropriate PFP system for their job functions while operating AWP equipment.
- Inform the user and operator how to recognize and guard against the potential fall hazards associated with the use of AWP equipment.
- Encourage the incorporation of best practices for PFP with AWP equipment into a company’s fall protection plans.
