When general maintenance tasks require elevation, the quickest and easiest solution is to grab a ladder. However, a ladder has its limitations and falls continue to be a top-reported OSHA injury.
OSHA Height Regulations
What are the OSHA height regulations?
For general industry workplaces, OSHA requires fall protection be provided to employees when elevations reach 4 ft. Because a ladder does not have a tie-off for personal protective equipment (PPE), it is no longer a solution for tasks at or above this elevation.
