Safety Message: Fall Protection in Construction
August 12, 2014
As NASA builds the future of U.S. space flight, we will not just be building mission hardware and software. We will also be constructing new facilities and modifying existing facilities.
Falls are the leading cause of fatalities and injuries on construction sites. Every year, there are more than 200 people killed and more than 10,000 people seriously injured in falls. We need to make sure that we understand and effectively implement fall protection requirements for our entire workforce. Proper use of fall protection programs saves lives.
