Fall Protection Training
Falls are among the most common causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths. Falls from ladders, scaffolding, roofs or other elevated work platforms cost employers over $5 billion annually in worker compensation claims.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to maintain a workplace that prevents employees from falling off overhead platforms, elevated workstations or into holes in the floor and walls. OSHA also requires that fall protection be provided at or above certain elevations and when working over dangerous equipment and machinery, regardless of the fall distance.
Organizations should have a fall prevention plan that includes safety training on fall prevention, ladder safety, and fall hazards awareness as well as how to properly wear and use a Personal Fall Arrest Systems (PFAS) and other restraint systems that reduce the chance of employee injury from a fall.
