Falls Prevented, Lives Saved With Three Steps

OSHA’s Fall Prevention Campaign offers fact sheets, posters, and videos that vividly illustrate various fall hazards and appropriate preventative measures.  This website is part of OHSA’s nationwide outreach campaign to raise awareness  among workers and employers about the hazards of falls from ladders, scaffolds and roofs.

According to OHSA, falls can be prevented and lives can be saved through three simple steps:

  1.  Plan ahead to get the job done safely;
  2.  Provide the right equipment, and
  3. Train everyone to use the equipment safely.

OSHA can provide materials and resources that employers can use during toolbox talks to train workers on safe practices to avoid falls in construction.  All documents on the website are available to print free of charge.
