    Speaker Notes:

    Lastly we’ll take a look at what may be the most widely used form of fall protection used in residential construction … "Personal Fall Arrest Systems."

    Personal Fall Arrest System must:
    • Be designed so an employee can neither free fall more than 6 feet, nor contact any lower levels. 1926.502(d)(16)(iii)
    • Bring an employee to a complete stop and limit maximum deceleration distance an employee travels to 3.5 feet . 1926.502(d)(16)(iv)
    • And, have sufficient strength to withstand twice the potential impact energy of an employee free-falling a distance of 6 feet, or the free fall distance permitted by the system, whichever is less. 1926.502(d)(16)(v)
