Fall Protection



Fall Protection

Fall Protection: Each year, many workers are hurt or killed as a result of falls in the workplace. Falls are usually complex events that involve a variety of factors. For that reason, the OSHA fall protection standard deals with both human- and equipment-related issues for protecting workers from fall hazards. This training will cover systems and procedures designed to prevent falls off, onto or through working levels and to protect workers from being struck by falling objects. Ideal learners are workers who work at heights, including on ladders and aerial lifts.
