Fall Protection

Fall Protection equipment

The purpose for the Fall Protection Safety Program is to ensure a safe work environment and to protect the health and safety of employees who may be required to work in areas where fall hazards are present. 

This Program outlines responsibilities for employees involved in elevated work; supervisors of employees involved in elevated work, elimination of fall hazards, and protection against fall hazards when they are present.

UNC Pembroke believes that falls can be prevented by proper planning, providing the correct fall protection equipment and properly training all workers on the safe use of equipment.
