How is your fall protection program?

Contributed by Eric Tofte, Director of Training, Evergreen Safety Council
With summer here, outside projects become more prevelant once again and working at heights is sometimes part of the job. Working at heights is dangerous, but with the right training and equipment you can work safely from heights. Remember, here in the state of Washington you have to protect employees from falling if they are on a walking/working surface 4 feet or more above the adjacent level. So pay attention and don’t short-cut safety when working at heights.

If you want more information or training, give Evergreen a call. You can also check the NIOSH site on falls.
