Fall Protection

The purpose of this program is to provide information about good practices, procedures, and training to employees participating in work activities on elevated surfaces to prevent falls while performing work tasks. The information included in this Fall Protection Program is in compliance with applicable California Code of Regulations and these are indicated in each relevant area throughout the document.

Fall protection includes primary fall protection or engineering controls used to prevent falls such as guardrails and secondary fall protection which refers to anchorages and all of the devices that a user attaches to the anchorage (i.e. lanyards, harnesses). This program includes requirements for both types of fall protection.
