Overview

Falls are one of the leading causes of death and injury to construction workers every year. Job sites can be dangerous places. When you work from heights, your chances of sustaining bodily harm increase. That’s why you need to invest the time and resources into taking a fall protection safety course.

 

Here are some common types of protection used on these worksites:

  • Guardrails.

  • Stair railings and handrails.

  • Safety net systems.

  • Personal fall arrest systems, such as safety harnesses and lines.

  • Inspections of fall protection equipment.

Each of these protections helps keep workers safer on job sites with heights. In addition to these measures, OSHA outlines the mandatory responsibilities of employers in these environments.

 

Some of them include:

  • Provide working conditions free of known and obvious dangers.

  • Keep work area floors clean, and if possible, dry.

  • Select and provide personal protective equipment, including fall protection gear, for workers at no cost to them.

  • Train workers about job hazards using language they can understand.

Employers and employees must come together to achieve fall protection safety on the job. Employers have several responsibilities required by law to keep you safe. But, as a worker, you must also stay up to date on the latest safety measures, precautions, and practices so you can maintain your safety daily.

Construction work often deals with heights. Therefore, employees should take fall protection safety courses. In addition, many other industries require their workers to carry out tasks from heights. Working from heights is more common than you might think, and there are always added risks for workers when performing such tasks. OSHA has different protocols for various industries that involve tasks like working from heights.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Fall protection safety programs make the construction process better for everyone, from business owners to manual laborers. Working from heights is dangerous, and having a fall protection safety program keeps everyone safer. As a construction worker working from heights, it is your right to understand the measures your employer takes to keep you safe. Knowing how to use safety equipment properly and spot safety hazards will help you avoid life-threatening accidents.

  • Business owners and clients also benefit from fall protection safety programs. Workers will complete tasks quickly and efficiently, facilitating happy clients. Most importantly, you will complete tasks safely. This saves employers money in the form of injury leave, medical expenses, and legal fees. Plus, if OSHA finds a job site is not up to spec, they can impose fines and even shut the area down until it meets fall protection requirements. Establishing a fall protection safety program beforehand can help avoid these repercussions.
