Falls from height continue to be the most common cause of construction worker fatality. This is especially true in residential construction. In the latest Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) update, they announced the online inventory of fall protection equipment. The Fall Protection Resource for New Home Construction website was developed by faculty members at Washington University in St. Louis and supported by CPWR through a NIOSH cooperative agreement. It is a catalogue of fall preventions devices utilized in residential construction and contains links to equipment manufacturer/distributor websites. A snapshot of the 1st page of the website is shown here. The page can be searched by the type of fall protection desired or by the phase of construction applicable to the device.
