We know that fall protection matters, but why? Here are the three most important reasons to invest in fall protection on the job:
OSHA is a pillar in job safety, providing precise requirements for equipment usage and training programs. In 2018, the organization made 7,270 citations on general conditions alone, which means that many teams do not use the correct safety practices on the job.
While the penalties for compliance failure can be steep, the harm to your crew is far more damaging. Of people who died on the job, 54% had zero access to fall protection equipment, and one in five of all fatalities are in construction. These events are preventable, which is why OSHA pushes strict regulations and companies like Malta Dynamics work tirelessly to deliver personal fall protection equipment.
The construction sector is one of the most dangerous industries for its work at heights and its high percentage of young workers. The statistics tell us that teams need accessible equipment that will keep them safe at all times, and Malta Dynamics strives to meet these needs.
OSHA standards outline the requirements for fall protection in the construction industry. Employers must provide fall arrest equipment when individuals are working at heights of six feet or higher. Workers need fall protection at lower elevations when working over dangerous equipment or materials like acid.
Construction operations work at six feet or higher all the time. Stay prepared and stock up on fall protection gear from Malta Dynamics.
