To prevent falls while working on roofs:
- Always use appropriate guardrail, scaffold, or fall protection systems.
- Both employers and subcontractors should provide comprehensive site-specific fall protection training for their employees.
- Conduct a thorough assessment in and around the work area to identify existing and potential fall hazards prior to the start of work.
