What can be done to reduce falls?
Employers must set up the work place to prevent employees from falling off of overhead platforms, elevated work stations or into holes in the floor and walls. OSHA/CSA requires that fall protection be provided at elevations of four feet in general industry workplaces, five feet in shipyards, six feet in the construction industry and eight feet in longshoring operations. In addition, OSHA/CSA requires that fall protection be provided when working over dangerous equipment and machinery, regardless of the fall distance. Be sure to check with local regulations for fall protection standards and requirements.
