Fall Protection has been a popular topic of conversation given the statistics pointing to a high proportion of deaths and disabilities in Canada.
Home safety is a very important to focus on, as the layperson may have less experience climbing a ladder, or checking the eaves trough on their roof. Due to the lack of training and opportunities to work alone without someones assistance, many home owners fall and suffer permanent disabilities as a result. They are often in a rush, lack the proper points of contact or flat surfaces to set up a ladder. The person may be at the worksite, the employer must take steps to ensure that staff who are going to heights have the proper knowledge, skills and protective equipment to protect themselves.
