Beyond Fall Prevention Planning: Being Prepared for Fall Rescue — May 7, 2024

Falls can occur in the blink of an eye, even when being careful and using proper fall prevention and protection methods.


If a fall does occur and a worker is suspended in a harness for longer than a few minutes, a lack of circulation can lead to nausea, unconsciousness, suspension trauma, and even death. It’s critical to have a rescue plan that includes more than just calling 911 – especially because of these time limitations.


As part of this year’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are hosting this virtual event devoted to educating employers and crew leaders on how rescue planning can save lives.


Attendees will learn more about identifying a competent person to lead fall prevention and rescue planning, incorporating key components of a rescue plan into the pre-job planning process, and using FREE resources and templates to tailor your plans to each unique jobsite.
