Fall Protection Continues to Lead OSHA’s Top 10 List of Citations

Fall Protection once again leads OSHA’s Top 10 list of the most frequently cited violations for the sixth straight year. The Top 10 list not only highlights the lack of fall protection on jobsites, but also includes a high rate of citations for fall-related safety issues on scaffolding (number 3) and in the use of ladders (number 7).

Falls are among the leading causes of worker deaths, particularly in construction. OSHA conducts an ongoing campaign to inform employers and workers how to prevent falls, and urges all employers to plan ahead, provide the right equipment and train their workers on fall prevention.

The OSHA Training Center is offering OSHA 3115 – Fall Protection at multiple locations this fall to reach as many people as possible with this life-saving information.  The 3-day course provides an overview of state-of-the-art technology for fall protection and current OSHA requirements, and features a one-day field exercise demonstrating fall protection equipment.
