Evaluate your Fall Protection Program

Evaluate your Fall Protection Program

Most legislation requires employers to develop a written fall protection plan appropriate to their site when employees have to work beyond a certain height (between 3 and 7.5 meters or between 10 and 25 feet) and are not protected by permanent guardrails. This plan shall describe the fall hazards and describe the fall protection devices in place in each work area, as well as procedures for the use, maintenance, adjustment and inspection of fall protection equipment. The plan must also describe the procedures to be followed to rescue a worker who has fallen and is restrained by his or her personal fall arrest device or safety net.

How does your company comply with applicable regulations?
