In calendar year 2016 according to OSHA, 991 deaths out of 4,693 worker fatalities (or 21.1%) were in construction.  In addition, out of the 991 deaths in construction, 384 were to due falls (or 38.7%).  Source.  Whether in construction or in other industry, it is important that employers make sure there is a safe working environment.  Falls are the most common causes of work injuries and deaths.  An important aspect of construction site safety is fall protection. Fall protection is needed to prevent employees from falling off elevated work areas or overhead platforms, or falling into holes in the floor and walls, or falls when working over dangerous equipment and machinery.  Preventing falls and injuries to employees and operators can save money in the long haul by reducing workers’ compensation. insurance claims/premiums, and potential OSHA fines.  Fall prevention can also increase worker productivity and confidence that they’re working in a safe environment.
