Employers, supervisors and workers all have responsibilities in reducing or eliminating falls from heights. Falls are the leading cause of accidental death and injury in the workplace. Every day, people are injured from falls at work. On average, each injury results in 4 weeks of lost time.

* NOTE: 75% of work-related falls occur between 6 ft -10 ft. OSHA regulated sites are more stringent and adhere to a 6 ft threshold for fall protection as do some corporate health and safety policies. The Canada Labour Code requires fall protection at 8 ft.
Purpose To equip workers and employers with the knowledge necessary to prevent fall related injuries and deaths from occurring in the workplace.
