The Fall Management Standards Laid Out By American Society Safety Engineers The American Society of Safety Engineers has laid out effective safety standards that lower probability of fall injuries in the workstation. The systematic fall risk management structure, for instance, depends on three key steps, which are fall elimination, fall prevention, and fall arresting. Fall hazard elimination is the first step that involves evaluating the workplace during the early engineering phase of a project and during planning of various tasks involved. The aim of site assessment is to eliminate all potential fall risk factors as well as identify other applicable approaches that could be employed to increase safety and enhance productivity. Considering safety measures in the early stages of a project lowers safety risk factors and ensures that the staffs incorporate safety standards into regular work procedures. For illustration, the workers can set up anchorage at strategic locations to secure fall arrest systems hence promoting safety while reducing installation charges. The second phase involves fall prevention and it requires systematic assessment of the workplace to identify the fall hazards that could not be eliminated completely. Even through it is difficult to eliminate the fall hazard completely, the management has a role in improving the workstation to avoid fall hazards. The common measures at this stage include installation of barriers, movement restrictions, guardrails, staircases, and other systems that lower chances of occurrence of safety risks.

Fall arresting is the last step in the line of protecting employees from falls and it necessitates the use of effective fall-arresting systems. Different arresting facilities are only used when the fall risk factors cannot be eliminated, reduced or barred by changing the design of the workstation or applying appropriate work processes. Mostly, the equipment applied in this stage comprise of lanyards, harnessers, fall arresters, supports, safety nets, anchorages, and shock absorbers all of which lower the effect or the risk of injury if a fall occurs. This stage involves critical analysis of the workplace and work processes to determine the right equipment to install, where to install and how to use the equipment correctly to minimize the risk.

In addition, the management of a project in which substantial fall hazard is evident must create a written fall hazard prevention plan that must be applied to lower or manage the risk. Besides, the management should include the safety requirements outlined in the fall protection plan in contract documents to ensure all the workers adhere to the set standards. All the staffs doing work at raised positions must be skilled in applying, evaluating and perform minor maintenance on the fall arrest equipment. In the event that any staff changes workplace or new fall protection equipment are installed, he or she must undertake refresher training.
