anchorages must be capable of supporting
5,000 lbs.(22.2kN) per worker or meet OSHA
requirements for a safety factor of two.
Anchorage requirements based on ANSI are
as follows:
withstand a static load of 5,000 lbs. (22.2kN)
withstand a static load of 3,000 lbs. (13.3kN)
withstand a static load of 3,000 lbs. (13.3kN)
system is attached to an anchorage, the above
anchorage strengths must be multiplied by
the number of personal fall arrest systems
attached to the anchorage.
