Falls are the number #1 killer in construction. We need to learn from fall incidents to prevent fatalities. Elimination techniques are the most successful way to prevent falls. Prevention through railings and restraint equipment is next in the hierarchy, and fall arrest systems are third in the hierarchy.

We will look at several applications including: flatbed trucks during loading and tarping, skylights, low slope roofs, holes, edges, and anchor points for window cleaning.
