In recognition of the National Safety Stand-Down to prevent falls, NALP would like to remind our members and other green industry employers to observe these fall prevention safety tips:
1.) Select the Proper Ladder for the Job – Never use an aluminum ladder near electrical lines!
2.) Train Your Ground Crew Employees – Provide head protection on jobs where falling tree limbs and debris are hazardous!
3.) Keep Shop Area Floors Free of Slippery Liquids – Clean up spilled oil and lubricants immediately!
4.) Maintain Clean Machine Operating Platforms – Remove any tripping hazards from equipment and trailer decks!
5.) Develop and Enforce Fall Prevention Policies – Ensure that all employees are aware off, and trained on, your fall prevention written program!
