**Important Notice** You should use the Fall Protection Handbook only as a general guide to fall protection practices and a companion to the actual regulations. This handbook should never be considered a substitute for any provisions of a regulation. Additionally, many states operate their own state occupational safety and health plans. These states may have adopted construction standards that are different from information presented in the Fall Protection Handbook. If you live in a state with an approved occupational safety and health plan, contact your local administrator for further information on the standards applicable in your state (see OSHA “state plan states” at http://www.osha.gov/dcsp/osp/index.html for more information.
Prevent construction-related falls! This handbook explains in simple language what builders, remodelers, and other industry professionals can do to comply with OSHA fall protection standards. You will learn how to eliminate the most common fall hazards found on home building jobsites.
In an easy-to-use English-Spanish format, the handbook provides guidelines for establishing a written fall protection plan and identifies safe work practices that can prevent costly accidents and injuries.
The clear text, photographs and drawings with captions demonstrate how to
• Select and use the right ladder
• Protect stairways, leading edges, window and wall openings, and floor holes
• Use a personal fall arrest system (PFAS)
• Safely build and erect exterior and balloon-framed walls
• Safely construct rafters and install roof trusses and sheathing
• Provide fall protection for application of roofing materials
• Guard against implement hazards
• Provide protection from falling objects
• Use safe work practices to protect workers working at heights
• Train workers to identify fall protection hazards
NAHB-OSHA Fall Protection Handbook is a MUST for your company’s safety program. Use the handbook with the Fall Protection Video.
“This handbook, along with the Fall Protection Video, is a great tool to train workers on the many different aspects of fall protection. It’s fully illustrated and one of the easiest books to use with the English and Spanish text side by side.”
