ANSI/ASSE Z359.1-2007 Safety Requirements for Personal Fall Arrest Systems, Subsystems and Components
This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, instruction, training, use, maintenance, and removal from service of connectors, full body harnesses, lanyards, energy absorbers, anchorage connectors, fall arresters, vertical lifelines and self-retracting lanyards with integral rescue capability comprising personal fall arrest systems for users within the capacity range of 130 -310 pounds (59 to 140 kg)

ANSI/ASSE Z359.2-2007 Minimum Requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program
This standard establishes guidelines and requirements for an employer’s managed fall protection program, including policies, duties and training; fall protection procedures; eliminating and controlling fall hazards; rescue procedures; incident investigations and evaluating program effectiveness.

ANSI/ASSE Z359.3-2007 Safety Requirements for Positioning and Travel Restraint Systems
This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, test methods and instructions of lanyards and harnesses comprising personal positioning and travel restraint systems for authorized persons within the capacity range of 130 pounds to 310 pounds (59kg to 140kg)

ANSI/ASSE Z359.4-2007 Safety Requirements for Assisted-Rescue and Self-Rescue Systems, Subsystems and Components
This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, instruction, training, use, maintenance, and removal from service of connectors, harnesses, lanyards, anchorage connectors, winches/hoists, descent control devices, rope tackle blocks, and self-retracting lanyards with integral rescue capability comprising rescue systems, utilized in pre-planned self rescue and assisted-assisted rescue applications for one to two persons.

ANSI/ASSE Z359.6-2009 Safety Requirements & Specifications for Personal Fall Arrest Systems)
This standard is for engineers that have knowledge in designing personal fall protection systems. This standard specifies the design and performance for active fall protection systems.

ANSI/ASSE Z359.7-2011 Qualification and Verification Testing of Fall Protection Products
This standard specifies requirements for qualification and verification testing of ANSI/ASSE Z359, Fall Protection Code, products.  It includes requirements for third-party testing, witness testing and manufacture testing of fall protection products to the requirements of the ANSI/ASSE Z359 standards.

ANSI/ASSE Z359.11-2014 Safety Requirements for Full Body Harnesses
         This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, marking, qualification, instruction, training, test methods, inspection, use, maintenance and removal from service of full body harnesses (FBH).  FBHs are used for fall arrest, positioning, travel restraint, suspension, and/or rescue applications for users within the capacity range of 130 to 310 pounds (59 to 140kg).

ANSI/ASSE Z359.12-2009 Safety Requirements for Connecting Components for Personal Fall Arrest Systems (PFAS)
This standard outlines the requirements for the design, performance, marking, qualifications, test methods, and removal from service of connectors.

ANSI/ASSE Z359.13-2009 Safety Requirements for Lanyards & Energy Absorbers for Personal Fall Arrest Systems (PFAS)-
This standard outlines the requirements for design, performance, marking, qualification, test methods, instruction, maintenance, and removal from service of energy absorbing lanyards and personal energy absorbers for users within the total workers’ mass range of 130 to 310 pounds (59-140kg)

ANSI/ASSE Z359.14-2014 Safety Requirements for Self-Retracting Devices for Personal Fall Arrest & Rescue Systems
This standard establishes requirements for the performance, design, qualification testing, markings and instructions, inspections, maintenance and storage, and removal from service of self-retracting devices (SRDs), including self-retracting lanyards with integral rescue capability and self-retracting lanyards with leading-edge capability.  This standard establishes requirements for SRDs intended for use in personal fall arrest or rescue systems for authorized persons within the capacity range of 130 to 310 pounds (59 to 140 kg).

ANSI/ASSE Z359.15-2014 Safety Requirements for Single Anchor Lifelines and Fall Arresters for Personal Fall Arrest Systems 
This standard establishes requirements for the design criteria, qualification testing (performance requirements), marking and instructions, user inspections, maintenance and storage, and removal from service of single anchor lifelines and fall arresters for users within the capacity range of 130 to 310 pounds (59 to 140 kg).

ANSI E1.39-2015 Entertainment Technology – Selection and Use of Personal Fall Arrest Systems on Portable Structures Used in the Entertainment Industry ( pdf)
This standard establishes minimum requirements for the selection and use of personal fall arrest systems (PFAS) on portable structures in the entertainment industry. In addition, the standard establishes minimum requirements for products and portable structures used in the service of personal fall arrest systems. The requirements for other methods used to protect workers from fall hazards such as safety nets, guard rails, and rope access techniques are not included in this standard.  This standard does not preclude the use of other appropriate standards to promote fall protection safety.
