PREPARATION: Have a safety harness and lanyard available to show correct fitting & methods and attachment.

  • Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. They cause 15% of all accidental deaths. Management should implement fall protection and fall prevention programs to protect employees from working at height.
  • Fall protection is required for persons working at height.
  • When an employee is working at a height of four feet or more then the employee is risking a fatal fall.  Fall prevention programs are required. Safety harness must be provided at eight feet in all industries.
  • Fall protection systems are equipment and devices that arrest a free fall or that restrain an employee so that it prevents a fall from occurring.
  • The safety harness with a lanyard must be of an approved type supplied by the manufacturer.
  • Safety harness and lanyard must be in good condition and inspected before use.
  • The lanyard must be anchored to a stable fixed point and to the harness. Where free movement is required, a running line is recommended.
  • Fall protection is also required when working from a man lift, crane basket, or over open water or crude oil lagoons.
  • Full-body harnesses wrap around the waist, shoulders, and legs. A D-ring located in the center of the back provides a connecting point for lanyards or other fall arrest connection devices.
  • 3 factors determine the arresting force from a fall: lanyard material type, free fall distance and the weight of the worker. The use of a shock-absorbing lanyard or a higher tie-off point will reduce the impact force from a fall.
