RMOL 0113 – Fall Arrest Systems

OSHA 311 – Fall Arrest Systems

Course Description: Falls are the single largest cause of fatalities in the construction industry. There are approximately 1,200 worker deaths annually and 200,000 to 300,000 lost time injuries per year. The average lost time injury is 31 days.

OSHA’s Fall Protection Standard was developed and reissued in response to these statistics. The reduction of accidents and injuries will save companies large amounts of money in earnings and output, medical and administrative expenses, and additional costs associated with accidents.

This course sets forth those requirements and criteria for fall protection in construction workplaces covered under 29 CFR part 1926. It is important to note that the provisions of this subpart do not apply to employees making an inspection, investigation, or assessment of workplace conditions prior to the actual start of construction work or after all construction work has been completed.
