FALL PROTECTION PLANNING
Do your part to prevent the leading cause of death in construction
For years, falls have been the leading cause of death among construction workers and also the most common OSHA violation in the workplace.
Failure to properly train or prepare your workers can result in a citation just like an incident can. Workers must be properly trained in both your fall protection procedures and your equipment.
In 2017, OSHA implemented the Walking-Working Surfaces and Fall Protection rule, which required new standards in fall protection training. Does your company currently comply with these regulations?
Safety Supply wants to help you prevent both accidents and citations with proper compliance, equipment and procedures. Together, we can stop falls.
OSHA provides three simple steps to keep in mind as you implement your fall protection program:
Plan: Determine which tasks will be needed to accomplish the job, and think about all the potential hazards involved
Provide: Make sure you provide all the necessary equipment.
Train: Ensure ahead of time that everyone on the team knows how to properly use the equipment and what procedures to follow in the event of the unexpected.
