The lingo of the world of fall protection can get convoluted pretty quickly, especially when it relates to different regulatory standards. CSA (Canadian Standards Organization), OHS (Occupational Health and Safety Act), ANSI (American National Standard), and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) all have their own language and areas of applicability that must be navigated in order to both manufacture and use fall protection equipment correctly. Not all of these standards are legally obligatory (only OHS and OSHA carry any formal legal weight), and not all of them necessarily apply at once (CSA and OHS apply to Canada, and ANSI and OSHA apply to the United States, although portions are used in other countries as well).

Professionals of all kinds require fall protection equipment to perform their jobs safely. Whether it be construction workers, window washers, or roofers, people put themselves at risk every day to earn a living. One thing all of the workers listed here have in common, however, is that they all (in the vast majority of cases) work above ground. And many fall protection companies design, manufacture, and sell equipment that is intended to best function aboveground, since the ground, seemingly, is as far as anyone can possibly fall. But we at Norguard know different.
