Train construction workers in fall prevention
  • Employers must provide appropriate fall protection training for employees, as established in 1926.503.
  • Workers must be retrained periodically, such as when fall protection equipment has changed or there has been a safety incident.

Training requirements for fall protection in Construction are established in 1926.503. Each employee who might be exposed to fall hazards must be trained to recognize the hazards of falling and in the procedures to minimize these hazards. Training must be conducted by a competent person who is qualified in the areas outlined in the standard.

When an employer has reason to believe that an affected worker does not recognize existing fall hazards at some point after the initial training, the employer is required to provide retraining for that worker. For example, workers must be retrained when:

  • Changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete.
  • Fall protection equipment or systems have changed.
  • Inadequacies in workers’ knowledge or use of fall protection systems or equipment indicate that they have not adequately understood or retained previous training.

The employer must prepare a written certification record that contains the name or other identity of the employee trained, the date(s) of the training, and the signature of the person who conducted the training or the signature of the employer. Maintain the latest training certification.
