Fall Protection has steadily remained at the top of OSHA’s Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Violations list for years. For the past several, OSHA has been actively promoting a nationwide campaign to prevent falls. The amount of accidents and deaths that could have been prevented with the proper use of fall protection is staggering. However, falls continue to be the number one cause of work-related deaths in construction.
