Fall Prevention and Safety on the job is essential to your business. It protects your employees and your business. It also keeps you in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. Your employees are your biggest asset, so if they are required to work on equipment, use machinery of any kind, or climb ladders and/or towers, you need to make sure they are properly trained. Certified instructors need to train them on fall prevention, risk management, personal protective equipment and safety measures. They also need training on the use of your specific material, protocols, and procedures. Managers and supervisors need that training as well to make sure they are enforcing safety policies and procedures.
Proper training will increase productivity because your workers will know how to take precautions, use safety gear, and prevent falls. They will be confident in their abilities and not be worried about falling, possibly to their death. This means they can concentrate entirely on the job duties. Injuries will be down, which will save your business money on worker’s compensation insurance rates and covering missed work days for overtime hours. Training is a cost efficient and well worth the expenditure to keep those other expenses down. Bear in mind; also, that penalties are high for non-compliance with OSHA safety regulations. Documentation of training will help you maintain compliance at all times. You will want to find a training company that will come to your job site and give hands-on training to your employees.
Consultation for the development of on-site solutions is also available. If you are beginning work on a new site or have begun construction on new towers or turbines, you may need to adapt your safety equipment or get new equipment. A consultant can develop protocols for you and provide safety harnesses, roof hatch systems, and, or secure grips and ladders. Once solutions have been designed, training on those measures can commence. Comprehensive Fall Prevention and Safety training is comprised of classroom learning and hands-on learning. The class hours will introduce workers to procedures, precautions and the equipment they will be using. The hands on hours will be the bulk of the training so they can get used to using the equipment correctly and safely.
