Fall Protection Rescue

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. OSHA requires that fall protection be provided 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. Working at heights is a hazardous job, one that exposes workers to falls to lower levels, falls through roofs or floor openings, falling objects and falls due to structure collapses.   The ANSI/ASSP Z359 fall protection and fall restraint standards address fall protection equipment and systems for climbing, work positioning, fall arrest, rescue, evacuation and other fall hazards. These standards also address training, and how to identify and abate hazards to prevent injuries when working at height.In this course, we will discuss protocols for the rescue of the above.
