Fall Prevention in Construction Safety Training

Construction workers make up approximately five percent of the country’s workforce but account for an average of 19% of all job-related fatalities each year.

Falls are among the most common causes of serious work related injuries and deaths. 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.

There’s a reason why Fall Protection makes OSHA’s annual Top 10 Most Cited Violations List.

This 8-hour virtual instructor-led training (VILT) course reminds workers that OSHA requires donned fall protection 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 requires that fall protection be provided when working over dangerous equipment and machinery, regardless of the fall distance.

This course suffices for a 1-day competent person level classroom certification training. The practical training and supervision should be performed at the jobsite. We can come out and conduct the necessary hands-on training to fulfill the competent person certification training at an additional cost.
