Work at height comes in various forms, sometimes workers will have to be elevated above a machine in a factory, or stand on a sloping roof of a residential construction site, or on the roof of a building for inspection and maintenance. No matter the situation, working at an elevation always opens up workers to the risk of a fall. This is why the use of fall protection should be taken very serious.
Employers and building owners are responsible for those who have to work at height on their jobsite or property. So they must provide fall protection measures if people have to work at an elevation where a fall risk is present. But employees also have a responsibility to use the fall protection equipment and to behave accordingly, so no accidents will happen.
