SafeSmart Access: Working at Height Regulations

A Knowledge in All Industries

No matter what industry you work in, if you need to access heights, it must be done safely. And that's not just for the welfare of your workers; any injury caused on site can mean a loss of productivity and in turn a loss of revenue. Also, not complying to working at height regulations applicable to your industry can make your business susceptible to legal ramifications.

In the United States, these activities are monitored and enforced by the United States Department of Labor and its safety arm, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).

OSHA has a particular interest in making sure that employers implement the best practices that protect workers from falls, stating that, "Falls are among the most common causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths. Employers must set up the work place to prevent employees from falling off of overhead platforms, elevated work platforms, elevated work stations or into holes in the floor and walls."
