Fall Protection

8-Hour On-Site Fall Protection Training Course

We Bring Our Experts To Your Facility

Any employer that has known or identified potential fall hazards in their workplace must take steps to reduce or eliminate the potential for employees to suffer injury from falling.

Employers must evaluate workplace fall hazards before purchasing fall protection or fall arrest equipment to ensure the correct equipment is purchased. Falls from elevated locations are a leading cause of workplace injuries, but there are plenty of opportunities to lower these potential injuries. It simply takes commitment on everyone’s part to follow fall protection protocol.
