Rollover Protective Structures Safety

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1926 Subpart W

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

This rollover protection online training presents an overview of rollover protective structures and overhead protection for material handling equipment. This course covers large machinery such as bulldozers and cranes. It also covers tractors and other agricultural equipment, but it does so in relation to this equipment being used in the construction industry.

Rollover protective structures (ROPS) are structures designed to protect the operator of heavy machinery if the machinery rolls over. Without them, operators face serious workplace dangers every time they operate these types of machinery. Any time a machine rolls over, operators can be crushed. This is a common cause of fatalities for equipment operators, yet it is almost entirely avoidable when ROPS are properly installed and used.

This course is for:
This OSHA rolloverprotection course is designed for anyone who operates wheel-type agricultural and industrial tractors used in construction work. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

Case Study: In July 2009, a paving employee in Virginia was operating a double-drum vibrating roller. As he was working on the left shoulder of the road, the roller tipped and began sliding down an embankment. The edge of the drums dug into the soft earth, which caused the machine to begin rolling down the embankment. The employee was crushed and killed.

An OSHA inspection revealed that the equipment was old and not equipped with a ROPS or a seatbelt.

Key Takeaway: The employee’s life could have been easily saved if his employer had adhered to OSHA standards for equipment ROPS and seatbelts. Sadly, non-compliance resulted in a loss of life. Always make sure that equipment is equipped with ROPS and seatbelts.
