Fall protection

Stopping falls through prevention programs

Employees assume risk anytime they work at heights, regardless of the industry. Engineering or administrative controls often help protect your employees from falls; however, it's important to understand OSHA requirements for the use and scope of fall prevention and fall arrest equipment.

Learn how to implement fall protection systems, including policies, programs and training.


OSHA fall protection regulations stipulate separate requirements for construction and general industry. Check regulations for the specific requirements for your industry. Contact your Pinnacol safety consultant if you have questions.
