Fall protection is when an employer protects workers from any hazard that could cause them to fall and get injured. This includes falling on any type of machinery, or falling into any hole in the floor. It could also be any fall from a platform or even a ladder. It is the responsibility of the employer to keep the work area dry and free from debris that could be a potential falling hazard.
