Factors to Consider in Fall Protection & OH&SA- Employers General Responsibilities

Factors to consider with fall protection

  1. All aisles and walkways should be kept free of clutter and debris.
  2. Oil spills and other slippery materials should be cleaned up immediately.
  3. Areas that are slippery because of the continuous use of water–common in the floriculture industry–should be off-limits as general traffic areas and restricted to those workers who must perform their duties in that area.
  4. Workers should put tools away when they are no longer needed.
  5. Sand and/or salt should be spread on icy surfaces if work has to be done in the vicinity. If the weather is particularly bad, consider putting the job off until conditions improve.
  6. Workers should wear safety footwear, appropriate for the work being done, to prevent slipping and falling on walking surfaces.
