618 Making the Most of Your Fall Protection Program

Summary: When fall protection issues are properly addressed, the result is increased safety and reduced risk. To be effective, fall protection programs must strike a balance between cost efficiency, compliance, safety, and usability. Since major fall protection incidents don’t happen often, it’s easy for an organization to be lulled into a false sense of security. But managing the major risks presented by falls is a smart and ethical business investment, in addition to a legal requirement. This paper will cover the necessary elements of an effective fall protection program. Even if a program appears successful—due to low incident or injury rates—this paper provides a “reality check” to challenge the status quo and discover ways to improve.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
