OSHA Fall Prevention for Construction

OSHA is continuing to work with the National Safety Council, a nonprofit public service organization, to promote workplace safety, giving emphasis to fall prevention at construction sites.


According to Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health David Michaels, “Falls cause more fatalities than any other hazard in the construction industry.”  So OSHA has entered into a new two-year agreement to identify best practices including developing fact sheets on the benefits of injury and illness prevention programs that identify workplace hazards.
