If you own or manage a construction, repair, HVAC, or other company that requires workers to be on ladders or roofs, then you need a fall protection plan in place within your business. This is a plan that lays out how your company will work to prevent workplace falls including the provision of fall protection safety rails. It should detail the equipment that you’ll provide, the expectations for your employees, and the consequences that could be faced if there is a violation of the fall protection plan.
Commitment to worker fall protection should begin at the top. Management should follow fall prevention rules when they are on a job site and enforce the rules and regulations universally throughout the company, identifying and correcting problems immediately. Interestingly, it’s often more experienced workers who are less cautious about fall prevention; their experience can make them compliant. That’s why training, re-training and then training again is important. Reinforcing the issues and safety rules for even experienced workers is key.
Fall prevention starts with the company itself.
