OSHA & ANSI Standards


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a national body that functions to promote and protect worker safety. Safety regulations relating to the construction industry are covered by section 1926 of the OSHA code, with fall safety standards falling under Subpart M of that section. Fall safety equipment plays a vital role in protecting workers in the construction industry, and the products offered by Guardian Fall Protection are carefully designed and manufactured to comply with the most current OSHA regulations.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a national body of volunteers that work to innovate and refine safety standards in the fall protection industry. ANSI is comprised of engineers, contractors, and other experts in the construction and other related industries, and draws upon the knowledge and experience of its members to set regulations for product testing, installation, application, and more. ANSI regulations are not legally binding, but do provide valuable direction and resources for best practice construction methods. ANSI regulations are also frequently adopted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, whose standards and regulations are enforced by law.
