COE - Fall Protection

MISTRAS’ Fall Protection Center of Excellence (COE) provides industry-leading services and solutions to safely work at height or in confined spaces. Combined with MISTRAS’ nondestructive testing (NDT), the COE offers a true “one source” resource for fall protection systems, solutions, and training. The COE is designed to protect human assets by preventing falls and damage to physical assets.
Fall Protection COE Overview
The Fall Protection Center of Excellence (COE) specializes in providing human asset protection solutions to accommodate work at height and confined spaces, allowing technicians to maneuver across assets in a variety of locations safely and efficiently.

Each COE technician is fully trained to investigate the entire asset and perform condition assessments to implement effective protective and remedial solutions to ensure optimal asset heath. The COE also offers turnkey solutions for the design, the installation, and certification of required training and rescue procedures. Through hours of training, each technician gains a complete understanding of the COE’s custom equipment, products, services, and solutions.
Methodology & Services
MISTRAS’ Fall Protection Center of Excellence (COE) provides dedicated services to ensure the safety of customers’ human assets working at height and in confined spaces. Entering a new facility, technicians perform risk analysis assessments to design, install and certify the most efficient and effective fall protection solutions possible, including:

  • Vertical and Horizontal lifelines
  • Anchors
  • Rails
  • Hoists
  • Guardrails

Each Fall Protection technician is fully trained to correctly interpret, understand, consult, and adjust solutions to meet operational and individual requirements for each of our clients. From risk analysis to rescue training, our fall protection is carried out by technicians who possess detailed knowledge of each of our products, services, and solutions. The Fall Protection COE provides turnkey services designed to the highest industry benchmarks, meeting both Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards.
The Fall Protection Center of Excellence (COE) provides a high level of expertise to determine safe and efficient inspection solutions, including use of specially designed equipment to avoid injuries.

Technicians are well-versed in all areas of the equipment use, inspection methodologies, and training, including pre-inspection surveys to determine equipment requirements, fall clearance calculations, and inspection strategies before technicians enter the inspection site. The COE performs optimal human asset protection solutions through:

Risk Analysis
  • Fall Clearance Calculation – Optimizing and understanding how to protect workers in the event of falls without being injured by equipment and stationary objects
  • Sharp Edge Calculations – Preventing rope and equipment failures at difficult locations and on edges.
  • Horizontal & Vertical Lifelines – Utilizing various types of systems for workers to work safely at heights, providing them a safe and efficient access to their work zone.
  • Swing Fall Calculations – Providing just solutions in the event of falls without the risk of collision with stationary objects, structural components, and equipment by considering the possible swing of the worker’s lanyard.
Equipment Design, Fabrication, and Installation
  • Life Line (Vertical and Horizontal)
  • Anchors (Designed & Certified)
  • Rails (For At–Height Situations)
  • Guardrail (For At–Height Situations i.e. Roofs)
Training and Certification
