To prevent falls while working:

  • Always use appropriate fall protection systems.
  • Conduct a thorough assessment in and around the work area to identify existing and potential fall hazards.
  • Both employers and subcontractors should provide comprehensive fall protection training for their employees, that is site specific.
  • Place warning signs in front of work areas and around perimeters where fall hazards have been identified.
  • Don’t place yourself in a potentially hazardous situation. Workers should always stay alert.
