Regular readers of our Tech Talk Blog understand that we stress developing a corporate culture of safety. Creating and maintaining a safe workplace doesn’t happen overnight—it requires a series of steps, including installation of fall protection equipment, inspection and re-certification, and training employees on the safe use of all fall protection equipment. Sometimes clients ask about the specific OSHA requirements on fall safety training. The bottom line is simple: the best fall protection system in the world is of little or no use unless your employees understand how to use the equipment properly. If employees MAY be exposed to work-place fall hazards, your company has a responsibility to train personnel to identify hazards and minimize their exposure to dangerous conditions.
