Chapter 45: Fall Protection

The purpose of this program is to prevent unprotected falls through the use of proper prevention and arrest systems. It covers working in unprotected elevated work areas (defined as any elevated work surface, including roofs, not surrounded by a passive fixed barrier such as conforming guardrails or protective parapet), use and design of fall protection systems, and designation of personnel. It applies to workers/authorized persons, competent and qualified persons and qualified engineers, supervisors/line management, the chief safety officer, the Department of Energy (DOE) site manager, and the program manager.

The requirements of this program do not apply to scaffold erection, articulating boom type aerial lifts, scissors lifts, excavations, motor vehicles, or personnel hoists, or work performed from ladders.
