Fall Protection is one of the "Focus 4" Compliance Efforts from OSHA. Having the right Fall Protection working in General Industry and Construction is critical to protect workers from injuries and fatalities. A workplace fall can have a devastating impact on any organization. Not only our workers and their families impacted by a significant workplace fall injury or illness, but companies have to spend a lot of money in paying workers compensation premiums. In addition, a significant workplace injury or illness can open up an organization to increased scrutiny by OSHA leading to monetary fines and workplace citations being issued. If a workplace fall fatality occurs, in addition to OSHA fines, employees can have criminal charges filed and end up in jail. This webinar will give a comprehensive overview of the OSHA Fall Protection Requirements for General Industry and Construction. Site specific Fall Protection question and answers will be answered and addressed.

Topic Background
Within the past decade, fall prevention violations are No. 1 on OSHA's list of most-violated construction standards, and they often result in tragic outcomes for workers and cost businesses a substantial amount of money and damage to their reputations. It is fair to say that the indoor industrial work environment - including factories, warehouses and manufacturing plants - also can harbor fall hazards. Such settings create numerous opportunities for tripping, slipping and falling, thanks to greasy floors, damaged steps, clutter and uneven walking surfaces.

It is easy to take shortcuts and let your guard down for a second or two. However, as an employer, it is important to understand fall safety practices to ensure that not only your facility is compliant with OSHA standards, but also to create a safe, fall-free working environment for your employees.

Regrettable events can happen to anyone and any business at any time. Taking chances in safety practices is simply not an option, especially when you are responsible for dozens of lives. The sooner you start establishing and implementing fall safety guidelines within your organization, the better prepared you are in protecting your workers and your business from tragic accidents.
