Atlantic Training's "Fall Protection" training program provides the information employees need to work safely when they are "off the ground", and satisfies the major training requirements in the OSHA Standard on Fall Protection.

Most of these incidents could have been prevented, so OSHA requires employers to provide fall protection equipment to their workers, as well as train them on how to use it properly. But in spite of this focus, the lack of proper fall protection equipment continues to be OSHA's most frequently-cited violation.
