Slips and falls are the most commonly documented form of work – related injury. It has been documented that as many as 35% of all work related accidents are classified as falls. These falls are likely attributed to factors such as cluttered and unkempt walkways, poorly protected openings, or inadequate forms of guarding or fall prevention. This course covers the issue of walking and working surfaces, providing education about the possible hazards of poor walking and working surfaces and methods that can be used to prevent such conditions.

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.
