Recognizing OSHA has enacted (and is now enforcing) a policy that requires businesses to provide employees with adequate training for workplace falls.
There are many things to consider when providing your workforce a training program for workplace falls, deciding what exactly the hazards are––and what kind of training is needed––is critical.

Employers must train all employees who work at height on fall hazards. Training should help workers pinpoint fall hazards in (work) areas where falls are likely to occur, and should instruct them on the proper procedures to protect them from serious injuries or even death.
Always remember that the burden of proof lies with the employer. Should OSHA audit your company you will have to validate that employees understood the training, for example by means of an exam.
When Was Your Workforce Last Trained in Fall Protection?
When an employee finishes training but doesn’t display an understanding of fall hazards or the correct usage of fall protection systems, that employee must be retrained.
Events that trigger the need for retraining include:
- Changes in the workplace that create situations not previously brought up in training.
- Changes in fall protection systems or equipment that weren’t included in previous training.
- A fall accident, or a near miss.
