Falls are the leading cause of worker fatalities in the construction industry. There were 264 workers killed in 2010 as a result of falls on construction sites. And 100,000 more construction workers are injured every year because of falls. Yet violations of OSHA’s standards for fall protection are still among the most frequent industry citations.

This course summarizes Title 29 CFR, 1926 Subpart M – Fall Protection, the OSHA standard created in response to the high number of injuries and deaths. It describes the standard’s rule on providing fall protection for employees, the criteria and practices for fall protection systems, and training requirements. It covers hazard assessment and fall protection and safety monitoring systems. Also addressed are controlled access zones, safety nets, guardrail systems, personal fall arrest systems, warning line systems, and positioning device systems.
