Safety Tip - Fall Protection/Safety Harness
Posted By DEMILEC
We have all fallen at one time or another. Some of us walked away uninjured,
some of us not so lucky and broken or sprained something. Injuries caused
by a fall results in: Loss time—Loss $$$$–Loss production—Loss of life.
September 15, 2012 OSHA’S new code pertaining to fall protection
will take effect. It is: 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1926.50 (b)(13)
Simply states that anyone working six (6) feet above ground level will
need to use conventional fall protection gear ( harness ). More information
can be found on OSHA’S web page under RESIDENTIAL FALL PROTECTION.
Let’s all work safe.
