This course gives you a basic understanding about OSHA's role in prevention and elimination of work-related illnesses and injuries. The OSHA standard identifies areas or activities where fall protection is needed.
Falls are the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry. This course provides an overview of fall prevention measures and areas required to have fall protection such as leading edge work and hoist areas. Formwork and re-bar, walkways, excavations, roofing activities, and wall openings are discussed before we take a closer look at types of fall protection such as guardrails, safety net systems, and personal fall arrest systems.
It clarifies what an employer must do to provide fall protection for employees, such as identifying and evaluating fall hazards and providing training. Under the standard, employers are able to select fall protection measures compatible with the type of work being performed.
OSHA places its rules for fall protection in several different subparts in the construction standards, depending primarily on the nature of the work. The standard covers mostly construction workers, except those inspecting, investigating, or assessing workplace conditions prior to the actual start of work or after all work has been completed.
