Historically, falls are the leading cause of fatalities in construction, accounting for about one-third of all fatalities in the industry. For example, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported fatal falls to a lower level in private construction increased from 255 in 2011 to 370 in 2016, a 45-percent increase. The BLS also reported there were 338 fatal falls in construction in 2018, out of 1,008 total fatalities. OSHA recognizes that incidents involving falls are generally complex events, frequently involving a variety of factors. Consequently, the standard for fall protection deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards. This training is intended to help workers and employers better understand the Fall Protection in Construction Standard’s requirements and the reasons behind them.
This required course can help fulfill the requirement for an individual applying for a New York City Site Safety Training Card.
