At last year’s National Safety Council Congress
and Expo, OSHA presenters noted that fall protection
was the agency’s second-most cited violation
category. That’s no surprise â€” fall protection
consistently ranks among OSHA’s highest number of
inspections and total fines.
Did you know OSHA estimates that more than 200,000 general industry establishments in the U.S. â€” employing around 12 million people â€” have confined spaces? Among those sites, approximately 1.6 million people enter confined spaces every year.
