OSHA Fall Protection Training
Falls are among the most common causes of work-related injuries and are the leading cause of death in construction work. Thirty-six percent of all fatalities in construction work in 2012 were from falls, and Fall Protection in construction was the most frequently cited standard by Federal OSHA in 2013.
Paragon Safety Group offers Fall Protection training courses to provide construction workers with the information needed to identify and prevent fall hazards, and to comply with OSHA standards. This course is available in both English and Spanish.
Who Should Take a Fall Protection Training Course?
This fall protection training is designed for all construction workers who might be exposed to fall hazards. OSHA requires that employers provide a Fall Protection training program that teaches workers (in a language they understand) to recognize the hazards of falling and the procedures to follow in order to minimize these hazards, and this course does that.
