Résumé

When working at heights, fall protection is generally provided by a fall arrest system FAS. The FAS is made of a full body harness, an energy absorber, a lanyard, a connecting subsystem and an anchor. The combination of components could be complex. Several guides and standards are directed at managers, explain too generic principles and are listing mostly limitations. Our proposal is a positive selection procedure starting with the work area in which the fall arrest system should protect the worker without interfering with the tasks. Several combinations of equipment are proposed. Then their limitations could assess by a competent person. The proposed table is a complement to a guide or standard such as the CSA Z259.17.
