Fall Protection

Overview :

Buy Button OSHA estimates that due to falls from elevations covered under subpart M, every year at least 68,000 injuries and 95 fatalities occur. One OSHA study of 99 fall-related fatalities suggests that virtually all of those deaths could have been prevented by the use of guardrails, body belts, body harnesses, safety nets, covers, or other means which would reduce employee exposure to the fall hazard.

This course teaches employees to use fall protection systems in construction settings. Main topics covered in our construction safety training include: the OSHA fall protection standards, fall protection systems, selection of fall protection measures, and inspection and maintenance of fall protection systems.
