Analyze Your Workplace Fall Hazards
As someone accountable for safety, there is enormous pressure to keep your work force safe while operating at maximum efficiency. While fall hazards are common, individual fall hazards and an effective plan and solutions are unique to your facility. In addition, as an occupational safety professional, you are challenged to understand and apply current OSHA, ANSI, and state-specific legislation within your situation, and develop a comprehensive plan for the following:
- Fall Avoidance
- Fall Prevention
- Fall Protection
- Fall Arrest
- Fall Restraint
By partnering with Diversified Fall Protection to assess your fall hazards, you benefit from:
- Working with an organization that has deep knowledge in fall protection across a wide spectrum of industries and applications
- Access to individuals defined by OSHA as a “qualified person” based on our specific fall protection training and experience
- Our support and expertise shifts the burden of designing and deploying a fall protection system off your organization, allowing you to focus on your core duties
There is not a single “universal fit” to mitigate all fall hazards. Truly gauging the likelihood of a fall taking place involves looking at your specific work environment, height at which work is performed, number of employees using an area and many other factors.
Diversified Fall Protection can provide a fall hazard and risk analysis survey for your facility or specific work area and provide you with a written report of our findings.
