According to the US department of Labor, there are over two thousand occupational falls reported yearly in the building and construction industry. Falls range from 6 ladders to falls off of skyscrapers. More than half of those falls result in permanent paralysis, and a quarter of the falls result in death. Because of the high risks associated with construction above ground level, OSHA has strict regulations that the construction industry must follow. Compliance and Safety offers training program that cover all of OSHA's general Fall Protection Program requirements, from ladder and scaffold safety to steel erection fall protection courses and understanding personal fall arrest systems.
OSHA's Position On Fall Protection and Hazards
Fall hazards are specifically targeted by OSHA’s mandatory directives as a result of their related seriousness and devastating effects. The work environments associated with these accidents are extremely wide-ranging and about 25% will actually involve fatalities! Because of the gravity of fall repercussions and OSHA’s emphasis on their prevention, we have made available training videos that encompass all of OSHA’s mandatory regulations.
