Fall Protection Video and DVD Excerpt:
Some people think that working off the ground is as dangerous as walking on a tightrope. These workers expect to plummet to their demise each time they work on high. It's true that above ground level our feeling of security may drop dramatically. In fact, without proper training working off the ground can be deadly. But by exercising caution we can work safely. Whether we are climbing ladders, standing on scaffolding, or working on the cables of suspension bridges. Combating the dangers of working off the ground begins with you. Don't take your safety of anyone else's lightly. You can avoid accidents by placing safety at the top of your priority list. proper work practices are important for any job. But when you are up there, the risk of an accident is heightened, and following standard safety procedures becomes even more important. For instance, if you need to climb a ladder to get where you're going inspect the rungs before you go up, make sure they are in good condition. While you are climbing practice the three point climb. This means keeping two hands and a foot or one hand and two feet in contact with the latter at all times.
