While most employers are aware that there are certain safety regulations that are set to protect their employees however not all employers may be unaware of what the rules and regulations are exactly. Many employees are also not completely aware of what these rules and regulations require their employers to provide fall protection. If you happen to have an employee that takes a fall while at work, you may be required to pay compensation, especially if for some reason you are found to be at fault. When you are practicing your fall protection guidelines you will have less of a chance of being required to pay any form of compensation if one of your employees happens to be injured during a fall. There are some jobs that have higher risks of falls than others. Construction workers have the highest risk of fall injuries as they work at elevated heights. When a person works at heights like this they are more likely to suffer broken bones, head and neck injuries and other severe injuries that can be avoided by using the proper fall protection regulations.
