OSHA has posted new media resources on its Fall Prevention page and encourages media to use them to help get the message out to workers and employers that safety pays and falls cost. According to OSHA, falls from heights are the leading cause of death in the construction industry.
OSHA has also created new wallet cards as an easy, portable way to spread the fall prevention plan, provide, and train people who need it. The cards include an illustration of safe work from a roof, as well as a QR code to direct readers to OSHA’s Fall Prevention page and educational resources.

OSHA will be offering a one-day training program on Fall Protection on July 10 in Washington, D.C., with the support of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America and OSHA’s Susan Harwood Grant Program. The course, which is free and open to the public, was developed in collaboration with OSHA and reflects OSHA standards and best practices. Topics will include fall protection statistics, OSHA standards, fall hazard identification, fall protection systems and equipment, and training requirements.
