Falls are the third highest cause of workplace fatalities in the general industry & the leading cause of death in the construction industry. Falls not only happen in traditionally hazardous occupations, such as construction work, but can occur in all types of workplaces.OSHA recognizes that accidents involving falls are generally complex events frequently involving a variety of factors. Consequently, the standard for fall protection deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards. And workers have to be oriented on this.
• Identify the injuries that could occur while working at heights;
• Recognize fall hazards in the workplace and know what systems of control to use in order to manage them;
• Know the different fall protection equipment, how to inspect and maintain them properly; and
• Understand the limitations of this equipment as well as being able to set up safe systems for each application required.

“Safety is not about promoting brands and buying safety products… Rather, safety is about preventing accidents and managing risks. Products
are solutions, whereas Safety is a Way of Life.”
