Various OSHA standards include specific provisions covering fall protection and/or personal fall arrest systems (PFASs) and falling object protection. This program will focus on CFR 1910 Subpart D for general industry and CFR 1926 Subpart M for the construction industry.
Fall protection must be provided for each employee on a walking/working surface with an unprotected side or edge at the height required by the OSHA standard applicable to their workplace. In general industry the elevated height level is four feet or more above a lower level. In the construction industry OSHA mandates employers to implement fall prevention measures and prevent falling objects whenever the employee is six feet or more above a lower level. In some construction situations the height requirement for protection can be different. It is important to know which OSHA regulation is applicable to your work environment and to provide fall protection equipment, such as fall safety harnesses when required.
