CSA - Z259.12-16

Connecting components for personal fall-arrest systems (PFAS)

active, Most Current
Organization: CSA
Publication Date: 1 January 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 49
scope:

This Standard specifies design and performance requirements, test methods, and requirements for marking and labelling individual connecting components used as part of a personal fall-arrest system (PFAS). This Standard applies to components that are

a) used in the interconnection of a complete PFAS unit in accordance with the applicable CSA Z259 series of standards;

b) intended to be used as the primary single link to a permanent anchorage connector; or

c) intended to be used as a primary attachment point between two or more subsystems.

This Standard does not apply to anchorage connectors that are covered under CAN/CSA-Z259.15.

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.
