Fall Protection and Scaffolding Safety

ebook

Written for members of the construction industry and any industry where fall hazards exist, this reference book/self-study guide features more than 250 original illustrations of the 29 CFR Parts 1910 and 1926 requirements. These illustrations allow foremen, managers, and others responsible for overseeing compliance to quickly and easily understand and apply the standards and procedures that appear in more than 120 pages of official, legal text. Readers will gain an understanding of the scope and range of fall hazards and the prevailing methods available to control them.

Fall Protection and Scaffolding Safety begins with a short, practical overview of OSHA standards and an overview of fall protection principles. The author then focuses on engineering controls, which are "considered the most effective, followed by administrative controls and personal protective equipment." The book explains OSHA standards for guarding open-sided walking and working surfaces and standards related to protection against falling objects.

The remainder of the book discusses various types of personal protective equipment and guidelines for adjustment, use, and care. It also examines four specific types of fall exposures: scaffolding; ladders; elevating and rotating work platforms, personnel hoists, and personnel platforms elevated by forklifts or cranes; and special trades.
