Fall Protection – Construction

Workers, usually for the sake of expediency, sometimes cut corners and work without fall protection equipment to accomplish little tasks here and there, removing the systems when they present an inconvenience, or dispensing with them altogether. And when that happens, risk is invited and bad accidents can happen. Recognizing and correcting unsafe conditions results in more than creating a safer work environment. Keeping your jobsite free of fall hazards reduces the likelihood of receiving a citation when inspected by OSHA.
