Which Facility Safety Improvements Prevent the Most Falls?
Falls are one of the leading causes of serious workplace injury and death in the US. Even though workplace fatalities have fallen in recent years, deaths from falls have increased! Fall Protection violations top OSHAs list of most common citations for more than ten years running. Recent updates to OSHA’s Walking-Working Surface Standard make the owner’s duty to provide fall protection explicit in the law. So, where do we start?!
Of course, budgets for capital improvements are limited. So it’s important to make these investments according to their ability to do the most good. In this webinar, we will review some of the low-hanging fruit of facility safety improvement—which fall hazards can be addressed to prevent the most injuries, according to the data. We will review these common fall hazards and the respective OSHA standards, and then learn about solutions to address them and create compliance.
