Fall protection is one of the most frequently cited OSHA violations, due to lack of proper equipment and training. It should come as no surprise then, that falls are the leading cause of death among private industry construction workers, accounting for over 35% of all fatalities. The next leading cause, struck by object, accounts for just under 10%.
Because of the risk of death from falling, OSHA requires the use of fall protection when working at heights of six feet or more above a lower level at all construction jobsites under CFR 1926 Subpart M, "Fall Protection."
Fall Protection for Construction is designed to help learners recognize the hazards of falling and how to minimize them.
