USTAG on Fall Protection

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on Fall Protection in October 1999 with ASSE designated as the TAG Administrator. The U.S. TAG consists of over 20 entities with an interest in fall protection, including governmental agencies, users of fall arrest systems, professional societies representing safety professionals, manufacturers of fall arrest equipment, and employers of those who use the equipment. The U.S. TAG develops recommendations for the U.S. position on international fall protection standards developed by the ISO Technical Committee 94 Subcommittee 4. The official vote on such standards is cast by ANSI, which is the U.S. voting representative to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

USTAG on Safety & Health Management Systems

ASSE serves as the U.S. TAG administrator for ISO Safety and Health Management Systems (ISO/ANSI/ASSE TC283).

USTAG on Risk Management

ASSE serves as the U.S. TAG to the new ISO Technical Management Board Working Group (ISO/TMB/RM) on Risk Management.

Voting ISO countries approved the creation of this standards project during 2003-2004. The U.S. TAG for Risk Management will use a consensus process to notify ANSI of how the U.S. should vote and comment to ISO (as ANSI is the voting organization for the U.S.) and will develop the ISO 31000 series of risk management standards.
