Initial Fall Hazard Assessment
Since each fall protection exposures is unique to itself, NSS recommends an Initial Fall Hazard Assessment of each facility’s fall protection exposures. This Initial Fall Hazard Assessment will help determine what type of solution is recommended.
The first step in any assessment is to try and ‘engineer the fall out of the workplace’. If this is not possible, NSS will determine if a fall-restraint system can be utilized to prevent a fall from occurring. If a fall-restraint system is not feasible, a fall-arrest system will be recommended. The fall-arrest system will need to designed such to reduce the impact forces of the fall imposed on the user, and to ensure the user does not hit a lower level and/or obstruction.
The key to any Initial Fall Hazard Assessment is input from the customer. Understanding their current processes and procedures are paramount when making a recommendation on any potential Solution to their fall protection exposures. NSS’ Fall Protection Specialists are properly trained and experienced to make these critical decisions to ensure a safe working environment for the users.

Fall Protection Inspection and Re-Certification
Annual fall protection inspection and periodic re-certification is about more than just complying with OSHA regulations and ANSI Standards. Engineered fall protection and suspended access system components are subject to wear. Improperly tensioned lifelines, loose or rusted bolted connections, deployed tip over posts, and faulty welds can compromise system safety. What’s more, unauthorized system modifications can put your employees and your company at risk. For all these reasons, your fall protection and suspended access systems require annual inspection and periodic re-certification by a qualified person in compliance with OSHA and ANSI standards.
