Working from a roof, on a ladder, in a scissor lift, or off a scaffold are all common tasks in homebuilding and renovation. A strong fall prevention program is essential to saving lives and preventing injuries in our industry.

A fall prevention program should include training of employees and supervisors/forepersons, hazard assessments, fall protection plans/procedures, rescue plans, and personal protective equipment.
