Fall Protection has been #1 on OSHA’s Top 10 list of most frequently cited standards for 11 years in a row with more than 5,000 violations in 2021. This is especially a concern in the construction industry, where 368 workers dies from falls in 2020; and across all industries that number is just over 800, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In this Fireside Chat, you’ll get answers to some of the most frequent questions that MSA safety experts get during fall protection training sessions, including whether or not fall harnesses have an expiration date, what defines leading edge, how fall clearance is calculated, and tips to keep in mind for effective Toolbox Talks.
