OSHA requires fall protection to be provided at elevations of 4' in general industry workplaces. While fall restraint is a preferred fall protection method as it eliminates the fall hazard, a fall arrest system is required in the situation where fall restraint is not practicable. For example, it is usually applied when people are working near a fragile surface, narrow ledge or unusual building or roof shape and are using lanyards or a rope.
