Falls are the number one cause of construction-worker fatalities, accounting for one-third of on-the-job injury deaths in the industry. To turn this problem around, we need to promote the use of fall prevention practices by contractors and construction workers. The campaign promotes three main messages:
- Contractors and workers can plan together, before every job, to work safely at heights
- Contractors must provide the right equipment for working at heights, and workers need to use that equipment.
- Contractors and workers need to be trained to use the equipment and to work safely.
