Fall Protection in the Workplace

Falls from elevation are a leading source of fatal and disabling injuries. Different trigger heights, regulatory requirements and types of work require different approaches and types of protection. This class will consider a variety of methods for protecting from the risk of falls: guardrails, hole covers, nets, fall arrest, fall restraint, fall positioning, controlled access zones and other alternative methods. Planning for accidental falls and rescue/retrieval practices are also a necessary part of fall protection and will be reviewed. Examples of equipment and hands on practices will be covered, and participants will engage in scenario exercises. The class is designed to provide knowledge and develop skills in the analysis of fall hazards, the selection and application of best practices and equipment and means to prevent falls.
