ASTM F887 - Fall Protection

ArcWear performs arc flash testing to ASTM F887, Standard Specification for Personal Climbing Equipment. ASTM F887 compliance is required by OSHA 1910.269 for workers exposed to an arc flash hazard. Finished products, including harnesses, lanyards, and accessories are tested at a 40 cal/cm2 exposure level and evaluated for melting and dripping and ignition. There are post-arc drop tests that must be performed for compliance; our team is happy to coordinate this testing on your behalf. Contact us for details.
