Did you know that falls remain one of the leading causes of death for construction workers accounting for 384 of the 991 construction fatalities recorded in 2016? That is why Fall Protection training is an important part of a worker’s overall safety training. Hazmat School’s OSHA Fall Protection training course is designed for workers who might be exposed to fall hazards. The program shall enable each employee to recognize the hazards of falling and shall train each employee in the procedures to be followed in order to minimize these hazards as well as go over some ladder safety techniques.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

If you’ll be standing on a raised platform or surface, up on a ladder or required to wear a safety harness, fall protection training is needed before you begin working. This applies to many different occupations, including:

  • Construction contractors from residences to high-rises
  • Shipyard workers
  • Roofing installers, window cleaners and various remodeling professionals
  • Manufacturing plant workers
  • Utility workers, particularly those in cranes

INDUSTRIES THAT REQUIRE THIS COURSE

Elevated structures and slip and fall hazards are found in many workplaces, from roofs to staircases, dock boards to scaffolds and typical holes and open platforms. The minimum height for training varies by industry. For many locations where serious injury or death from falls can occur, OSHA requires workers to undergo fall protection training and recognize the dangers and required safety measures.

Even if workers will be less than 4 feet above the ground, there must be safety measures on platforms and walkways around open machinery, including conveyor belts and vats. It is critical that workers understand the proper use of harnesses, nets and railings and that employers include this equipment.

WHAT REGULATIONS DOES THIS COURSE SATISFY?

This online training for fall protection meets federal OSHA guidelines for general industries (29 CFR 1910), shipyard employment (29 CFR 1915), marine terminals (29 CRF 1917) and longshoring (29 CFR 1918). It also adheres to construction industry requirements under 29 CFR 1926, particularly 501-503 within Subpart M.

While there is no annual retraining requirement or specified intervals for fall protection, it’s vital for employees to take a refresher course in case of employee violations or close calls encountered on the job.
