Did you know that falls are the leading cause of construction accidents with over 500 fall related deaths occurring every year? Fall protection training is an important part of a worker’s overall safety training. Identifying fall hazards and deciding how best to protect workers is the first step in reducing or eliminating fall hazards. Occupational fatalities caused by falls remain a serious public health problem. Any time a worker is at a height of four feet or more, or is working over dangerous equipment or machinery, the worker is at risk and needs to be protected. The proper fall protection training will go a long way in achieving this.
This important safety course will show you a variety of methods to safeguard you from falling at height, including how to properly use fall protection equipment, as well as provide guidance on how safety managers can ensure a safe workplace for their workers, certifying you under OSHAs Fall Protection standard 29 CFR 1926 Subpart M.
