Historically, falls are the leading cause of fatalities in construction, accounting for about one-third of all fatalities in the industry. OSHA recognizes that incidents involving falls are generally complex events, frequently involving a variety of factors. Consequently, the standard for fall protection deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards. Our training material is intended to help workers and employers better understand the Fall Protection in Construction standard’s requirements and the reasons behind them.
Fall protection must be provided for each employee on a walking/working surface with an unprotected side or edge at the height required by the OSHA standard applicable to their work place. Various OSHA standards include specific provisions covering fall protection and/or personal fall arrest systems (PFASs) and falling object protection. In general industry (CFR 1910 Subpart D) the elevated height level is four feet or more above a lower level. In the construction industry (CFR 1926 Subpart M), OSHA mandates employers to protect employees from fall hazards and falling objects whenever the employee is six feet or more above a lower level. In some construction situations the height requirement for protection can be different. It is important to know which OSHA regulation is applicable to your work environment and to provide fall protection when required. We have provided several training resources to assist you in understanding and complying with the OSHA Fall Protection regulations and standards.
