IEEE P1307-D1-2016 pdf free.Draft Standard for Fall Protection for Electric Utility Transmission and Distribution on Poles and Structures.
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply, The IEEE Siundurds Diciürnari’ Online should be consulted for terms not defined in this clause.
activation distance: The distance traveled by a fall arrester or the amount of line paid out by a self- retracting device from the point of onset of a fall to the activation point where the fall arrester begins to apply a braking or stopping force. This activation point is where the fall arrester engages the lifeline or, in the case of a self-retracting lanyard, where an internal brake engages. Activation distance is part of the free- fall distance experienced in a fall.
adjuster: A means to shorten or lengthen a strap, webbing, or rope.
administratise authority: The governmental authonty exercising jurisdiction over application of this standard.
anchorage: A point of attachment to which the fall protection system is connected.
attached: A climber is connected to an anchorage when utilizing a fall protection system to prevent or arrest a fall.
belt, line worker’s body: A belt that consists of a belt strap and 0-rings, and may include a cushion section or a tool saddle.
capadt: The combined weight for which the component is designed to be used. Combinedweight includes the user’s body weight and clothing, tools, and other objects borne or carried by the user.
carahiner: A connector component generally comprised of a trapezoidal or oval shaped body with a nonnally closed gate or similar arrangement that may be opened to permit the body to receive an object. and when released, automatically closes to retain the object. Three types of carahineers are described as follows:
— Locking iipe (required by this standard), with a self-closing, self-locking gate that remains closed and locked until intentionally unlocked and opened for connection or disconnection.
Non-locking ripe, with a self-closing gate that remains closed, but not locked, until intentionally opened by the user for connection or disconnection.
— Manual locking ripe, with a self-closing gate that remains closed but not locked (unless purposely locked by the user) until intentionally opened by the user for connection or disconnection.
climber in training: A climber who is in training to become a competent person for climbing which could be referred to as a competent climber.
climbing: The vertical movement (ascending and descending) and horizontal movement to access or depart the worksite.
conlpetcnt rescuer: A competent climber annually trained in rescue procedures. The competent rescuer shall be able to identify hazards and understand equipment inspection, care, and use,
competent: Having demonstrated through training, experience, and authority for the purpose of identifying and correcting hatardous or dangerous conditions in a fall protection system, or any component thereof under consideration, as well as its application and use with related equipment.
connecting hardvb arc: A rigid component or element that is used to couple parts of the system together. such as snap hooks and carabiners.
deceleration distance: The additional vertical distance a falling climber travels, including lifeline elongation, harness stretch, and excluding free-fall distance, before stopping, from the point at which the energy-absorbing device begins to operate. It is measured as the distance between the location of a line worker’s body belt, or full-body harness attachment point at the moment of activation (at the onset of fall arrest forces) of the energy absorbing device during a fall, and the location of that attachment point after the climber comes to a stop.IEEE P1307-D1 pdf free download.
