Fall Protection

The purpose of the William & Mary Fall Protection Program is to minimize exposure to fall hazards and injuries resulting from falls. This program covers all aspects of fall hazard recognition, and prevention. It includes recognizing hazards, fall hazard assessments, fall prevention, fall protection, engineering and administrative controls, training requirements and personal fall protective equipment.

Employees who may be exposed to serious injury from fall include those who work at elevation (4ft or higher), use ladders, scaffolds, elevating equipment, or personal fall protection systems, who work on sloped, uneven, unstable, or slippery walking or working surfaces of work where there are slipping or tripping hazards.
