I often find that the reason most people don’t implement a good fall protection program, or are out of compliance is not because of a lack of knowledge, but an ignorance as to what equipment is available to assist in their fall protection needs. They may, or may not, perform a fall or hazard assessment, but once the hazard is identified they didn’t know how or what to use to help. The following are some examples of specialized equipment designed to help comply with the various fall hazards in construction.
Be sure to read the manufacture instructions for installation procedures and application requirements prior to use. If the system fails, where does the liability fall if the system is not installed properly? Use the right tool for the application to ensure adequate fall protection is in place.
