Fall Prevention: Best Practices for the Three Main Types of Hazards


4/7/22 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

To help prevent injuries and create a safe working environment, employers are required to identify hazards in their facilities. But how you go about that is the tough part.

During this webinar, J. J. Keller experts will explain the three main types of hazards that cause falls: unsafe environment, unsafe equipment and unsafe behavior. They’ll also cover three fall prevention strategies:

  • Eliminate hazards
  • Use of passive methods (e.g., guardrails, covers and fall-restraint systems)
  • Use of administrative controls (e.g., safety monitors, warning lines and designated areas)

If these aren’t enough to prevent a fall, employers must provide workers with a personal fall arrest system and train them on how to use it properly. The experts will cover exactly how to do that.

Finally, attendees will learn how to develop a written plan to rescue a worker if a fall were to take place.
