Over 40% of serious injuries to construction workers are the result of falls from scaffolding.
Deadly mistakes do happen and can easily be avoided by making sure the equipment used is designed for purpose, and correct safety products are in place.
OSHA have several requirements in place to reduce the risk of workers falling and prevent deadly accidents.
While standing on a Scaffold at a height of 10ft or higher OSHA stipulate Fall Prevention solutions must be implemented.
Work at Height Regulations 2005 clearly state that fall prevention solutions must be implemented and correct equipment used for the intended purpose.
Every jobsite has its own requirements, this does not have to mean cutting corners or overlooking safety.
