Fall Protection Course Description
Fall protection is required by OSHA in many different situations. Ladders, scaffolds, lifts, hoisting operations, walking and working surfaces, and working on roofs are some of the major areas of concern, and some requirements differ depending on whether the work activity is covered by the construction standard or the general industry standard. Guardrail requirements are discussed, as well as the elements and use of personal fall arrest systems. An exercise in measurements of safety-zone roof widths for different roof types is conducted, for fall protection involving safety monitoring instead of protective equipment. Sample safety plans are also reviewed.
