What controls are available to mitigate risk?

  •  Secure tools and equipment when working at heights. Consider the use of the other dropped object prevention practices like drop cloths over grating, installing temporary barriers on handrails, and a tool registry for jobs at height

  •  Use fall protection and prevention equipment. Inspect and verify fall protection equipment; ensure certification 

  •  Plan for and set-up fall rescue devices prior to work beginning

  •  Inspect rigging cables and straps to ensure good condition prior to use

  •  Discuss potential dropped objects, crush prevention and slip/trip/fall hazards when developing a JSA and during toolbox safety meetings
