What you will learn

Falls are one of the leading causes of workplace injury in the United States. Despite repeated increases in the fines for these violations, in 2022 OSHA reported, for the 10th year running, that fall protection violations are the most common citation issued to employers. In addition to exposing workers to danger, non-compliance also exposes employers to significant civil liability. 

In this course, EHS managers will learn about hazard identification on the rooftop and in other at-height environments. We will explore the relevant regulatory codes and consensus standards, and review products that create compliance with these codes.

Learning objectives:

  • Best practices in fall protection and identifying hazards
  • Owner's duty to provide fall protection and updates to the regulation
  • Learn about solutions to common fall hazards, including ladders, skylights, roof hatches, and indoor at-height environments
  • The hierarchy of fall protection
