30 Jul 2019 OSHA's Top 10: Fall Protection
Most people who work in construction spend at least part of their time working at heights. Did you know that if you are working more than six feet off the ground, you need fall protection? In general industry, it’s four feet! Falls from heights are the main cause of injuries and deaths in construction. Given that uncomfortable fact, it’s probably no surprise that three of OSHA’s “Top 10” standards violations cited during inspections involve some aspect of fall protection – or lack thereof.
