A fall protection plan is required whenever a worker is working at height. Government regulations require written plans be available to all workers. The plan must be available at the work site before work where there is a potential for a fall. Workers affected by the fall protection plan must be trained in all its elements and the plan must be made available to them.
Below are some fall protection requirements, including documents that can help you develop a fall protection and rescue plan for your worksite. It’s important to keep your employees trained, keep up-to-date copies of the latest AS/NZS standards and inspect your fall protection equipment on a regular basis. But there’s a lot more to think about. Capital Safety recommends every employee participate in a comprehensive fall protection training program to create the knowledge and skill base necessary to protect workers at height. Because at the end of the day we want every worker to go home safely so you can live your life to the fullest tomorrow.
