Video Transcript

Welcome to our program. Today we're going to drop in on a topic that will keep us safe when we're off the ground.

Fall Protection
Some people think that working off the ground is as dangerous as walking a tight rope. This workers expect to plumbing to their demise anytime they work up high. It's true that above ground level are feeling of security may drop, dramatically. In fact, without proper training, working off the ground can be deadly. But, by exercising caution, we can work safely. Whether we're climbing ladders, standing on scaffolding, or working on the cables of suspension bridges.

The Basics
Combating the dangers of working off the ground begins with you. Don't take your safety or anyone else's lightly. You can avoid accidents by placing safety at the top of your priority list. Proper work practices are important for any job. When you're up there, the risk of an accident is hightened and following standards safety procedures becomes even more important. For instance, if you need to climb a ladder to get where you going, inspect the rounds before you go up. Make sure they are in good condition. While you're climbing, practice the three point climb, this means, keeping two hands and a foot or one hand and two feet in contact with the ladder at all times. Keeping your weight centered between the rails will help you maintain your balance and reduce the chance of a fall. Specialized equipment like lift buckets and cherry pickers require extra protection. Don't forget to hook up your life line. When you're on the move, watch your step, be on the lookout for trip hazards. Do your part by practicing proper housekeeping. Maintain the neat work area so that no one trips of leftover tools and platter. Pay attention to warning signs. They mark the point where you cross and to fall the protection territory. Signs also tell you whether certain areas are restricted to workers wearing fall protection equipment. Don't work above the ground if you're taking medication that could make you drowsy. And never work after drinking alcohol. These things impair your reflexes and increase the chance of a dangerous fall. What you've got in the basics down, it's important to take a close look at your facilities fall protection plan.

Sticking to the Plan
Fall Protection Plans focus on location where falls could lead to serious injuries. The heightened which protection is required depends on the type of work that you do. On most work sites, protection begins at 4 feet off the ground. But in the construction industry, precautions aren't required until you're six feet off the ground. Workers must be protected from falling by at least of one of the following: 

  • Guard Rails
  • Safety Nets
  • Personal Protective Equipment

A system of guard rails is one of the easiest ways to prevent falls from ledges. Rails can be set up either as temporary or permanent controls. They must rise between 39 and 45" above the walking surface and support a force of 200 lbs, the weight of the average worker. Safety nets are often used in areas where guard rails aren't always practical.

There are essentially two kinds of nets;

  • Personnel nets are designed with heavy duty webbing that can catch workers
  • Debris nets are woven with much finer webbing to capture falling objects before they injure someone beneath them

All nets must be kept in good condition. Inspect them at least once a week and after they catch anything that might have been damage to webbing. Remove tools and other  materials caught in the net as quickly as possible. You may not think you can take the time but leaving this things in the net create a safety hazard. Of course, we should take precautions to prevent objects from falling in the first place. Most facilities do this by installing screens and tow boards, just above the level of walking surface. Screens and tow boards pluck tools from materials from slipping over the edge. 

In elevated areas with unprotected sites and edges, personal fall arrest systems are a must. Before you make use of this in the field you should test them out to see how they feel. A secure fit provides the most protection in the event of a fall.

Personal Protection

Personal fall arrest systems consists of;

  • a body holding device
  • a connecting device
  • an anchor point

The best body holding gear to use with this system is a full body harness. At the end of a fall, when the lifeline grabs tight, the harness spreads out the effective the shock over the shoulders, buttocks and thighs. Harnesses are fitted with D rings for attachment. Always use the one at the center of the upper back when you attached the connecting device, this will help the harness evenly distribute your weight during a fall.

Connecting devices such as lanyards and retracting lifelines link you and the safety harness to the anchor point.

A lanyard is a short rope or strap that only let you fall a short distance. Lanyards over two feet in length should be fitted with shock absorbing options which reduce the force of a fall.

Self retracting lifelines have a drum round line which allows for a wider range of movement. In the event of a fall, a breaking mechanism will quickly stop your descend. Be careful when using self retracting lifelines for horizontal movement. Moving more than 4 feet from the anchor point with this devices may lead you vulnerable to a swing fall. This occurs when you swing back toward the anchor point. The impact of heading the side of a building or other surface during a swing fall can be just as serious as an unprotected fall.

Both lanyards and retracting lifelines are fitted with snap hooks. Make sure the hooks are securely locked in place before you climb. This will prevent a roll out of the hook which could lead to a nasty plunge.

Anchor points provide the third element in a personal fall arrest system. To keep you safe, an anchor point must support 5,000 lbs for each employee connected to the anchor. When you're setting up to your own anchor point, make sure that it is secure. Never use pipes or electric conduit as anchors. They can easily break free under the force of your falling weight. Bosun's chair are often use with vertical lifelines. This support your weight when your working of the side of a structure. If you use a Bosun's chair, you must also wear a full body harness for complete protection. This harness must be connected to a second separate lifeline. 

When your job calls for some mobility, you'll need to hook up to a fixed lifeline, this system allow you to work safely on either horizontal or vertical direction. 

Horizontal systems are design to be rigged between two fixed anchor points. They allow you to safely walk across the surface from one point to another without having to detached your lanyards. Horizontal lifelines must be setup by qualified workers. 

Vertical systems allow workers to safely move up and down within the work area. Remember connection devices hooked up to vertical lifelines must be fitted with automatic breaking devices, this grab on the lifelines to prevent further falls.

Your safety depends on the effectiveness of each element in the fall protection system, so it's important to inspect your equipment before you use it. Look out for fray or broken straps in your harness. The D ring must not be been out of shape and make sure its securely attached. You should also look for tears or missing stitches that could allow the D ring to refrain in a fall. Damaged on any part of the harness compromises your safety, if you find any problems get a new one.

Working above ground level can be safe and easy for everyone if you stick to the rules:

  • Be Aware of Hazardous Areas and Know What You Need to Protect Yourself
  • Follow Safe Work Practices - don't risk an accident
  • Practice Good Housekeeping - keep materials and tools away from edges and out of walk ways
  • Climb Ladders with Care - keep your weight centered between the rails 
  • Use the Personal Fall Arrest Systems that is right for the job - inspect it before each use

If you follow your facilities fall protection program and remember to work safely, you'll never find yourself hanging by a thread while you're off the ground.
