The top 5 fall protection violations in 2017

#1 Residential construction

The residential construction had an increase of nearly 11.5% in citations brings this to new total of 4,252 citations. Regulations require that a fall protection plan (in written form) must be available for all involved workers.

#2 Unprotected sides/edges

The second ranked violation in this top-5 is situation of  open (and unprotected) edges. If temporary edge protection has not been applied yet, workers should always be required to protect themselves against a possible fall by means of fall protection PPE.

One of the fastest ways ensure that unprotected sides and edges are properly taken care of is by the installation of a guardrail system.

#3 Roofing work on low-slope roofs

The numbers of this type of violations has dropped from 625 citations in 2016, to 558 citations in 2017. Saving at least 67 lives of workers in this year. This situation can be solved using PPE for working at height and rescue.

#4 Steep roofs

We see that the awareness must have grown the past year, resulting in a reduction of the citations number by 39 cited violations. Bringing the total of 2017 to 484 citations. However, the 4th place in top 5 must give an alarm signal regarding working at height.

#5 Holes and skylights

The fact that the risk is still a problem can be seen in the low number decrease of citations 2017 year. Moving slowly from 154 citations in 2016 to 143 citations in 2017 a decrease of 11 cited violations. The solution for these situations is either by means of pre-protected skylights or external fall protection solutions such as guardrails, single anchor points or horizontal lifeline systems.
