If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is time to take proactive steps to build a safer workplace.  Rather than reacting to an accident–or an OSHA citation–consider an on-site fall hazard assessment from the safety experts at Diversified Fall Protection.

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 and years of experience across a wide spectrum of industries and applications.  In addition, you’ll have access to individuals defined by OSHA as a “qualified person” based on our specific fall protection training and experience.  The net effect of this 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.

Fall protection is a complex and often confusing component of any company’s safety program, so why not partner with a trusted advisor to achieve your safety goals?

Need more convincing?  Consider these sobering statistics:

  • The failure to provide fall protection is consistently ranked as OSHA’s #1 Citation
  • OSHA penalties for non-compliance are scheduled to increase by 80% this year
