Fall hazards are found in many workplaces where work is carried out at height, e.g. stacking shelves, working on a roof & unloading a large truck etc. But safety nets are the most efficient and cost effective way to protect people from injury after falling from heights.

One of the most important things to remember when working in construction is to keep your feet beneath you. If your feet do not touch the ground, you are at risk of a fall. Make the most of your time on the clock and protect your livelihood by following these safety precautions. Learn more here Fall Protection

Hi All,

There is huge info to about fall protection at work even it is related to at home. Fall hazards can be different forms in a workplace. People cane from from higher to lower positions and they can fall from the same levels.

It is great to be in this group to exchange experience and ideas

Cheers

The campaign to stop falls in construction is well underway! In 2010, more than 10,000 construction workers were injured as a result of falling while working from heights. 

There are 3 simple steps to save lives featured on OSHA's website: www.osha.gov/stopfalls

 

ASSE supports our Arizona members as they push ADOSH to enforce residential fall protection for people working at heights 6 feet and above, as opposed to 15 feet.

We are manufacturing Square blocks with 12 Ft (3 Mtr.) Height. the top surface of the block is having sharp edges as it is composed of no. of sharp edged plates. above the block there is continuous movement of crane and therefore it is not possible to take fox supprot from the top of roof. and as per procedure it is compulsory to climb above the block.

 

Anyone can suggest the solution for the same?

How to use safety belt? 

From where it will be supported?

Design for tie up the life line?

any-how the employee should not fall down from the top even on the top surface of the job.

As a newbie to the site you might find our new product development of interest - a new tagging and inspection system for equipment used at heights - including harnesses, ladders, scaffold towers, MEWPs and scaffolding. Visit our website for info (click here), I'd be interested in hearing your thughts.
