Falls from Height fully bridges the gap between planning and execution, steering readers toward simple workplace-specific solutions. Moreover, it explains how to develop and implement a comprehensive protection program, enabling all organizations and their employees to fully prepare themselves to respond to a fall from height.
The book is divided into four parts:
- Part I: Regulatory Considerations, Rescue Plans, and Developing a Rescue Capability underscores the need for a rescue program, explaining how to fully leverage available resources to optimize the program.
- Part II: Equipment, Systems, and Skills details the skills that all rescuers should have and the equipment they need to perform a rescue at height.
- Part III: Putting It All Together discusses principles of rigging, single-rescuer methods, and group-rescuer methods.
- Part IV: Successful Workplace Planning examines the unique challenges of different workplace environments and then offers a step-by-step guide for implementing the recommendations in the book.
“Timely and useful as more employers are starting to deal with fall protection but probably overlook rescue.” — James Martin, CIH
