Fall Prevention for Construction

OSHA Safety Courses for General Industry and Construction per 29 CFR 1910 & 29 CFR 1926

Only: $19.95

Mobile Device Ready


Falls are a persistent hazard found in all occupational settings. A fall can occur during the simple act of walking, climbing a ladder to change a light fixture, or as a result of a complex series of events affecting an iron worker 80 feet above the ground.

The highest frequency of fall-related fatalities, however, occurs in the construction industry. Falls cause more deaths in construction than any other hazard.

Falls can be avoided by either fall protection or fall prevention. Fall protection such as safety nets and personal fall protection systems are excellent safeguards that reduce or eliminate injuries and fatalities when falls occur. The best way to avoid fall-related injuries and fatalities, however, is to avoid having a fall in the first place; in other words, fall prevention.

OSHA requires that employers prevent employees from falling from overhead platforms, elevated workstations, or into holes in the floor, ground, and walls. This 1-hour course is designed with the intention to prevent falls in the construction industry.

If workers are required to use fall protection, additional training is required.
