Fall Protection

Fall protection refers to a set of preventive measures and equipment designed to safeguard workers from the risks of falling from elevated surfaces or heights. It encompasses various tools such as guardrails, safety nets, personal fall arrest systems (PFAS), and harnesses. These systems are employed in construction, roofing, and other industries where workers operate at heights, aiming to prevent injuries or fatalities resulting from falls. Fall protection protocols involve risk assessments, proper equipment selection, installation, and consistent adherence to safety guidelines, including regular equipment inspection and worker training to ensure effective use and compliance with safety standards.
