- In January 2023, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced that it increased fall-related penalties to $15,625 per violation, while fines for willful or repeated offenses are now $156,259.
- Four of the top 10 violations of workplace safety standards involve fall protection, prompting a whopping 11,017 citations for 2022, according to OSHA.
- Falls are one of the leading causes of serious work-related citations, injuries and deaths.
These factors show why fall protection training is essential.
To meet this need, Summit Anchor Company offers fall protection training that fulfills OSHA regulatory requirements for training workers at height.
Which type of fall protection training is best for your company?
In general, each worksite must have at least one competent person onsite to identify existing and predictable hazards in the work environment. And OSHA requires that all workers have an authorized person fall protection status when working at a minimum height of 4 feet (6 feet for construction) wherever a 42-inch-high guardrail or parapet does not exist.
We’d love to work with your team to make your job site as safe as possible. We provide employees certified authorized and competent person fall protection training that meets OSHA and ANSI requirements.
