6. RESCUE PROCEDURES
6.1 The employer shall provide prompt rescue to all fallen authorized persons.
E6.1 Contact with the rescue subject (communication or physical contact) should occur as soon as possible after the fall. The recommended goal for rescue subject contact should be less than six minutes. What constitutes “prompt rescue” can vary depending on the circumstances. The type of potential hazards identified in the fall hazard survey report should determine rescue planning.

ANSI Z359.4-2007
7.3 Training. Prior to performing rescue work, rescuers shall be trained to select, inspect , use, store, and maintain the equipment according to the requirements of this standard and the manufacturer’s instructions. Rescuers shall also be trained in emergency rescue planning and execution of self-rescue. All training shall be conducted by a Competent Trainer. Training shall include lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice in the requirements of this standard.

Furthermore, prior to the start of any work a Competent Person must prepare a written Fall Protection and Rescue plan. That plan must consists of types of fall protection/rescue equipment being used, i.e. Full body harness with SRL's and a “Gotcha Kit”, the placement of anchors, the names of those that will be working in fall protection equipment, the documentation of training of those who are exposed to fall hazard, etc.
