To prevent falls at construction sites:
Workers should be trained on the proper use of equipment including its limitations, how to care for it and when it is needed.
Guardrails, safety nets or personal fall arrest systems should be used to guard falls.
Holes should be guarded or covered with materials that can support two times the weight of the employees, materials and equipment that the cover could be exposed to.
The right equipment should be used. Beamers, rope-grabs, beam straps, butterfly anchors, concrete plunger anchors and retractable lanyard, etc., must be used correctly.
A survey or audit of the site should be carried out to note any potential hazards.
