The ability of the human body to survive a fall with the minimum chance of serious injury will depend principally on the decelerating forces imposed on the body during fall-arrest and the manner in which those forces are transmitted to the body. This standard specifies requirements for the materials, design, manufacture and testing of industrial safety belts and harnesses, and ancillary equipment including energy absorbers and lanyards.
Appendices include test methods for equipment items and assemblies, and for component materials. Covers selection requirements and recommendations for determining the types of components of the system that would be appropriate to the envisaged usage.
