Fall Protection Gear
Not all jobs take place on solid ground. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls are one of the most common causes of serious and fatal injuries in the workplace. In attempt to reduce this risk, OSHA requires employers to have a number of workplace safety measures in place, and must provide specific PPE and safety supplies to help prevent workers from falling from raised platforms or elevated work stations or into holes or openings.
Fall protection gear like body harnesses, rope and cable lifelines, and retractables are standard safety equipment used by men and women working in construction, warehousing, manufacturing facilities and processing plants, utilities, window washing and building maintenance, roofing, tree service, mining, fire and rescue, shipping, oil and gas, and several sport and recreation related occupations.
