Falls account for the greatest number of fatalities in the construction industry, especially among small businesses and businesses with Hispanic workers. Over the past 10 years, at least, an average of 359 workers were killed from falls, slips, and trips, and nonfatal injuries and illnesses that resulted from falls, slips, and trips occurred at a rate of 31.4 per 10,000 full-time workers in 2020.

Another indicator of the need for training is the amount of citations OSHA issues for fall protection violations in the construction industry. Fall protection violations continue to be among the most cited standards in the construction industry, consistently topping the list of OSHA’s most frequently cited violations. Due to the number of violations, the seriousness of injuries caused by lack of/or improper fall protection, and the number of fatalities caused by falls, it is imperative that additional emphasis be placed on fall protection training in the construction industry.

AGC of California is pleased to offer this NO-COST one-day training program based on OSHA standards and best practices to answer the need for quality training within the industry.
