6. Employee Education and Training

Step 6! Important, even on its own.

The correct use of Personal Safety Equipment and an understanding of the limitations of the protection these items provide is vital in the assurance of safety system integrity.

Hard hats do NOT prevent death in the event of a falling counterweight of a tower crane, and ear plugs do not always provide sufficient protection against 140dB noise levels.

Understanding these limits will prevent the “Superman Syndrome so many workers have already fallen from.
