What is OSHA?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labour.
The OSH Act covers most private sector employers and their workers, in addition to some public sector employers and workers in the 50 states and certain territories and jurisdictions under federal authority. Those jurisdictions include the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Wake Island, Johnston Island, and the Outer Continental Shelf Lands as defined in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act.
Falls are a leading cause of workplace injury. Various methods and systems are used to protect workers by preventing falls, and arresting falls as soon as possible if they occur. Identifying fall hazards and selecting the proper type of fall protection are key to keeping employees safe when working at dangerous heights.
