OSHA's Position On Fall Protection Training
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2011, the number of work-related fatalities attributed to falls, slips and trips totaled 553. Interestingly enough, 21% of those were falls from heights of 10 feet or less with 10% coming from falls less than 6 feet! All-in-all slips, trips and falls are the 2nd leading cause of work-related fatalities in the U.S. Additionally; millions of dollars are spent on lawsuits and workman’s compensation payments each year. Unfortunately, many of these deaths, along with debilitating injuries, are the result of work habits and behaviors that effective training could have prevented. OSHA has set up a number of mandatory regulations that are geared to prevent these types of injuries and fatalities (OSHA 1926.500). Because of this, we have made exceptional high quality videos and training tools designed to meet OSHA’s training standards. The topics that are covered in our training materials include:
- Spotting potential fall hazards
- Inspection of equipment that could lead to a fall
- Proper Housekeeping
- Protective equipment designed to prevent falls
- OSHA fall protection requirements for those working on a ladder (OSHA 1926.500(a)(2)(vii)
It’s important to realize that OSHA takes their requirements very seriously, especially in a situation where hazards present a high potential for serious injury and fatalities.
