Description: A certified safety professional will visit your work site and train up to 15 employees at a time. This will allow you to get customized training specific to the work you’re doing and the equipment you use.
A competent person regarding fall protection will do OSHA fall protection training (1926.503). The below list shows training topics for fall protection.
OSHA fall protection training must be in a language covered workers understand.
In addition to Fall Protection Standards, employers must also comply with Walking-Working Surface Regulations. These regulations are found in 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart I. They specify requirements for safe walking and working surfaces in the workplace.
Employers must ensure that all walking and working surfaces are free of hazards and safe for employees to use. They must also provide employees with proper footwear and clothing to protect them from potential hazards.
Employers must also provide adequate slip, trip, and fall protection for employees working at height or on uneven surfaces. This can be done by using guardrails, safety nets, personal fall arrest systems, or other appropriate measures.
Inspections are needed for fall protection. These include inspection of fall arrest PPE such as harnesses, lanyards, carabiners, self-retracting lifelines and others done before each use and work shift. Signs that gear should be replaced include wear, red threads, mildew, sun/heat damage or defective components. Companies must freely provide usable PPE to employees.
A competent person (or competent rescuer) thoroughly inspects all equipment such as all safety harnesses and safety lanyards, as well as systems annually for damage and safety. Qualified persons inspect to verify that fall protection systems have been installed properly.
Use OSHA fall protection plans for site orientation, as part of the OSHA fall protection training, and inspections.
If the employer cannot use standard equipment such as guardrails, safety harness, safety lanyards, safety nets, and/or other conventional systems and equipment because it presents greater hazards, an OSHA fall protection plan is needed. These jobs include leading edge work, precast concrete erection and residential construction. These are written by or with a qualified person and have information about the job site and all fall hazards. The plan includes fall protection methods and equipment to be used-having information on the processes including assembly, installation, maintenance, and disassembly procedures for the equipment as well as instruction needed for handling, storing/securing fall protection equipment.
Fall protection plans should also have a fall rescue plan. Rescue is needed to avoid suspension trauma in fall arrest situations. After the fall, hanging in the harness needs to be as short a time as possible.
