OSHA ANSI Fall Protection Safety


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Fall protection training must consist of:

    • A.

      Identifying fall hazards & Equipment selection

    • B.

      Anchoring & Using equipment properly

    • C.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A & B
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both A & B." Fall protection training must consist of both identifying fall hazards and equipment selection, as well as anchoring and using equipment properly. This ensures that individuals are aware of potential hazards and are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to prevent falls and protect themselves in the event of a fall.

    Fall protection equipment categories consist of which three:

    • A.

      Ropes, anchors & body belts

    • B.

      Fall arrest, fall prevention & positioning/restraint

    • C.

      Counter weights, ropes & harnesses

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Fall arrest, fall prevention & positioning/restraint
    Explanation
    The correct answer is fall arrest, fall prevention & positioning/restraint. These three categories of fall protection equipment are essential for ensuring safety in situations where there is a risk of falling. Fall arrest equipment is designed to stop a fall in progress, fall prevention equipment aims to prevent falls from occurring in the first place, and positioning/restraint equipment allows workers to safely work at heights by providing support and limiting movement.

    Equipment that stops a free fall in progress & prevents collision with the ground or lower level is:

    • A.

      Fall restraint

    • B.

      Fall arrest

    • C.

      Both A & B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Fall arrest
    Explanation
    A fall arrest system is designed to stop a free fall in progress and prevent a person from colliding with the ground or a lower level. This system typically includes a full-body harness, a lanyard or lifeline, and an anchor point. When a fall occurs, the fall arrest system activates and absorbs the energy of the fall, reducing the impact on the person's body. Therefore, the correct answer is fall arrest.

    Guardrails are a type of:

    • A.

      Fall prevention

    • B.

      Fall arrest

    • C.

      Fall positioning

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Fall prevention
    Explanation
    Guardrails are a type of fall prevention because they are physical barriers that are installed along elevated surfaces to prevent individuals from falling off. They provide a protective barrier and act as a preventive measure to reduce the risk of falls. By creating a barrier between individuals and the edge of a platform or elevated surface, guardrails help to maintain a safe working environment and prevent accidents. Therefore, the correct answer is fall prevention.

    The three components of a fall arrest system is the : Anchorage connector, Body wear & ________________:

    • A.

      Harness webbing

    • B.

      Thick ropes

    • C.

      Connecting device

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Connecting device
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Connecting device." A fall arrest system consists of three components: the anchorage connector, body wear, and a connecting device. The connecting device is used to connect the body wear (such as a harness) to the anchorage point, ensuring that the person wearing the system remains securely attached in the event of a fall.

    Anchorage is commonly referred to as a:

    • A.

      Strap

    • B.

      Harness

    • C.

      Tie-off point

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Tie-off point
    Explanation
    Anchorage is commonly referred to as a tie-off point because it is a secure point to which a person can attach their safety harness or strap to prevent falling. This tie-off point is usually a strong and stable structure that can support the weight and force of a person in the event of a fall. It is an essential component of fall protection systems and is used to keep workers safe while working at heights.

    The anchorage connector is the device used for: 

    • A.

      Putting on a body harness

    • B.

      Connecting the harness to the connecting device

    • C.

      Preventing a fall at 6 feet or more

    • D.

      Securing a connecting device to an anchorage

    Correct Answer
    D. Securing a connecting device to an anchorage
    Explanation
    The anchorage connector is used to secure a connecting device to an anchorage. An anchorage is a secure point of attachment, such as a beam or a lifeline, that can support the weight of a person in the event of a fall. The anchorage connector is the device that connects the connecting device, such as a lanyard or a lifeline, to the anchorage point. This ensures that the person wearing the body harness is securely attached to the anchorage and can prevent a fall from occurring.

    What is the only form of body wear acceptable for fall arrest:

    • A.

      Body belt

    • B.

      Body Harness

    • C.

      Both A & B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Body Harness
    Explanation
    A body harness is the only form of body wear acceptable for fall arrest. Unlike a body belt, which only supports the waist, a body harness distributes the force of a fall across the shoulders, chest, and legs. This helps to prevent injuries and provides better support and stability during a fall. Therefore, a body harness is the preferred and recommended form of body wear for fall arrest.

  • 9. 

    Which component bears the greatest force during a fall:

    • A.

      Anchorage connector

    • B.

      Harness

    • C.

      Connecting device

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Connecting device
    Explanation
    During a fall, the connecting device between the harness and the anchorage point bears the greatest force. This is because the connecting device is responsible for transferring the force of the fall from the harness to the anchorage point. The anchorage connector and harness are important components, but they do not directly bear the force of the fall like the connecting device does. Therefore, the connecting device is the correct answer.

    When selecting fall protection equipment you must consider:

    • A.

      Length of the lanyard

    • B.

      Length the shock absorber will elongate

    • C.

      Height of the worker

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    When selecting fall protection equipment, it is important to consider the length of the lanyard, as it should be appropriate for the specific work environment and potential fall hazards. The length the shock absorber will elongate is also crucial, as it determines the amount of force that will be absorbed during a fall. Lastly, the height of the worker is a significant factor to consider, as it will determine the length of the lanyard needed to provide adequate protection. Therefore, all of these factors must be taken into account when selecting fall protection equipment.
