Fall Protection

Provided by: ToolingU

"Fall Protection" provides employers and employees with a comprehensive overview of fall safety for the workplace where fall hazards exist when people or objects may slip or fall from elevated working surfaces. Employers must designate competent persons to assess fall risks on a worksite before work begins and as work is conducted. Additionally, employers must comply with fall protection standards established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), ensure employees receive adequate training to successfully adhere to fall safety practices and procedures, and provide appropriate fall protection equipment. Falls are one of the most common and preventable causes of workplace injury. Improving fall safety measures helps reduce the risk of employee injury and death.
