According to OSHA’s standard, 29 CFR 1910 Subpart D on walking and working surfaces, employees must be trained on the nature of fall hazards, how to recognize them, and the procedures to follow to minimize those hazards. This fall prevention training focuses on hazards in walking areas at workplaces. The regulations also cover prevention, protection, and safety on ladders and dock boards. This course goes over these regulations and demonstrates the safe work practices to avoid a slip, trip or fall accident.
