Week 2 of the National Safety Council’s (NSC) annual National Safety Month highlights slips, trips, and falls, and with good reason. Violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) general requirements for fall protection continually top the list of most frequently cited standards, and falls remain one of the most common causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths in both general industry and construction. In 2017 alone, there were more than 8 million preventable fall injuries.

Though most people assume that falls are primarily a concern for those working at elevated heights, there are plenty of slip, trip, and fall hazards in every work setting. Let’s review some common fall hazards and what you can do to prevent them.

Both employers and workers have a responsibility in fall protection, from project planning to understanding a company's written fall protection plan.
