Construction Fall Protection

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1926 Subpart M

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

Slips, trips, and falls have been the leading cause of construction worker death in the United States for many years. There are obvious and easily implemented controls to prevent these injuries and deaths, but they are often ignored or overlooked. As such, fall protection safety training is critical and required by law.

This online training course details the applicable standards and regulations for a fall protection training program, including the responsibilities of employers and employees. The course will describe safety measures and hazard controls for fall protection, such as personal protective equipment and fall prevention systems.

This course is for:
This fall protection training is designed specifically for construction workers. The OSHA 1926 fall protection standard applies to all workers, supervisors, and managers that work near or supervise any area that requires fall protection.

Many activities in the construction field present a higher risk of injuries from falls or falling objects, and even experienced workers need to be protected from these hazards. This OSHA fall protection training online course may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

Case Study: A 31-story condominium complex was being built in Miami, Florida, and a stucco company was contracted to stucco the exterior of the building. Five employees of the stucco company were applying stucco to the building about 75 feet above grade when the mast climbing work platform (scaffold) collapsed. Three of the employees were working on a cantilever decking section of a platform extension, while the other two employees were working on the platform extension portion of the scaffold. When the failure occurred, it caused the cantilever deck to rotate, which caused three men to fall to the ground. The other two men were able to hold onto a section of scaffolding, which prevented their fall. The three men who fell to the ground were pronounced dead, while the other two were treated for minor injuries at the hospital.

Key Takeaways: When authorities arrived on the scene to assess the reason for the equipment failure, they found that the scaffolding had been overloaded on the orders of a supervisor. The structural integrity was also compromised, although this was unknown to anyone on the jobsite. If proper attention had been paid to the condition of the equipment, it would not have failed, and three people would not have died.
