In July and August, the MOL will focus on hazards that can result in falls at construction sites. MOL inspectors will visit construction sites to check that they’re in compliance with laws and regulations, and ensure that:
- Employers have policies, programs and safe work practices in place to protect workers from fall hazards
- Workers using ladders, mobile stands and platforms are properly trained and supervised
- Workers use appropriate fall protection systems, PPE and other safety devices
- Openings in floors, work surfaces and walls are protected by guardrails or protective coverings.
