Fall Protection Awareness: An Employers Training Priority
(SSN) - In Canada the main cause of injury is the result of a fall. This is noteworthy since falls are the most common cause of injury hospitalizations in Canada. A fall can occur during simple acts, from walking or climbing a ladder to changing a light fixture. Distractions or complex tasks increase the risk of a fall, which can be fatal for an industrial tradesman working over 30 feet above the ground.
Successful reduction of fall injury and fatality rates require a combined effort of government regulators, industry leaders, labor unions and employers and the employee. One of the first places to start is providing your workforce with a comprehensive (BSAT) Basic Safety Awareness Training is (FPA) Fall Protection Awareness.
All too often, workers on a job-site, day in and day out, get used to their environment. Situational awareness is diminished as the daily routine drives on. Providing work crews with a knowledge base, regarding fall protection awareness, will reduce risk of injury, and death, and in turn create a good and safe working environment for your workforce.
Safety is the cornerstone for profit in any high risk industry. So it goes that reducing risk can be beneficial for your company and investors.
