Increase your fall protection knowledge.
It is an employer’s legal and, some would argue, moral responsibility to implement safeguards for workers, especially when their work puts them at risk of injury or death. Falls are by far the most common workplace accident in Canada. Understanding the standards, guidelines and regulations is only one aspect of providing a safe work environment.

This material is meant to help you gain a better understanding of this and more.
