Three Ways to Avoid Workplace Falls: Plan. Provide. Train.

Did you know that workplace falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry? Tragically, these deaths are preventable. Construction workers and employers can save lives by planning ahead to ensure that jobs are being performed safely. This means thinking about how the job will be done, what sort of tasks will be involved, and what safety equipment will be necessary to perform those tasks. The second step to prevention is toprovide the right equipment. Any worker who is working six feet or more above lower level risks severe injury or death with a fall. Employers should provide these workers with the right equipment, such as different kinds of ladders, scaffolds and safety gear. Finally, training workers to use equipment in a safe way is another way to prevent falls. Employers should provide training that allows workers to understand how to safely use equipment.
