ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 is a standard that consists of design, testing, performance and labeling requirements for tool tethering systems and containers used to transport and secure tools and objects at heights. The four categories of equipment covered in this standard are: Anchor Attachments, Tool Attachments, Tool Tethers and Containers.
Compliance is the First Step on the Safety Ladder
Currently, under OSHA standard 1910.27 cages are required on ladders where the climbs are over 20 feet high. In OSHA’s new standard (OSHA standard 1910.28) taking effect 11/19/2018, a ladder will not be required to have fall protection until their height is over 24 feet (24’-0-1/4” requires fall protection).
