STAY ON TOP OF THINGS

Use Your Fall Protection

  • Be aware of situations that could result in a fall from heights.
  • Inspect fall protection equipment (harness systems) and devices (guardrails and tie-off points) before each use.
  • Look for and report fall hazards such as unprotected floor openings/edges, shafts, skylights, stairwells and roof openings/edges.
  • Use handrails on stairways and maintain 3 points of contact getting into and out of vehicles and other mobile equipment.
  • Use fall protection equipment if required for the job. Be sure that the equipment is right for the task, fits properly and is in good condition.
  • Make sure that floor holes and open shafts are protected by sturdy guardrails or covers.
