Four A’s of fall prevention

Original article published by Safety+Health

Falls to a lower level are the second leading cause of workplace fatalities. Help prevent them by following the four A’s of fall prevention:
Ask yourself before starting work: Is a fall prevention plan in place? Are you trained in and using proper fall protection equipment? Are fall prevention systems such as guardrails in place?
Be Aware: Keep an eye out for possible hazards, including torn carpeting, spills on the floor, obstacles blocking a walkway, clutter on the stairs or cords on the floor.
Address the hazards: Don’t assume someone else will do it. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you see a hazard, report it.
Always keep safety top of mind. Follow safe practices, including walking slowly, watching where you’re going, wearing proper footwear and more.
