Falls are one of the leading causes of workplace injury in Canada. And falls from roofs—whether during construction of a building or while making repairs—are some of the most common. To ensure that your workers are protected from falls when working on roofs, you must assess the fall hazards posed by the work and implement appropriate safety measures.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
Use this form, which is adapted from one used at Harvard University, to assess the fall hazards posed by work on a roof and ensure that the proper safety measures are used to protect workers from them. (Adapt the form for your OHS program and operations and the fall protection requirements under your jurisdiction’s OHS laws.)
