Cal/OSHA Construction Fall Protection

Online Training Certification Course

Title 8 CCR, Section 1669

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Slipping, tripping, and falling are leading causes of injury and death for workers in the construction industry-and yet these injuries are some of the easiest to prevent. Worker awareness of risk and adherence to safety regulations are proven ways to keep workers safe.

This online certification course meets the requirements for fall protection training in the state of California. It covers important OSHA safety training standards including applicable regulations, injury statistics, common slip/trip/fall hazards, key safety practices and mindsets, and requirements for personal protective equipment.

This course is for:
All construction workers are exposed to slip, trip, and fall hazards and must be trained for their safety. This online fall protection training will cover the hazards as well as the protective measures, available at most construction sites.

Case Study: A framer with a building company was working on a two-story residential building, and starting to form the walls for the second floor. Another employee had laid 2-inch by 4-inch boards flat on the floor to measure and mark them. The framer stepped onto an unsupported board that was hanging over the unprotected edge of the second floor, causing him to fall 12.5 feet to the floor below. He was taken by ambulance to the nearest medical center, where he was hospitalized for 19 days for treatment of bilateral pulmonary contusions, multiple rib fractures, a left radial head fracture, and lacerations.

illustrates. A guardrail or safety net around the edge of the second floor, or the use of personal fall protection, could easily have prevented this man's suffering and missed work time. It is also important for employers to educate workers about safe work practices and about staying alert to avoid the creation of additional hazards - in this case, the hanging board.

It was fine. A lot of information to swallow all at once, so I think that periodic reminders about important safety practices would be helpful. Maybe a safety newsletter?
