SITE SAFETY WORK RULES

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
WORKING ON ELEVATED SURFACES

Any time employees are working on elevated surface, next to floor or wall openings or on roofs, the possibility of injury from a fall does exist. Each situation must be elevated to by the competent person to determine what type of fall protection should be used. Many types of fall protection do exist; static lines, rope grab, guard rails and cables, lanyards, harnesses, retractable lines. Each device has a specific purpose and use.

All methods of fall protection must comply with OSHA minimum requirements. C.R. Leonard requires that in most situations, when personal fall protection is required, safety harnesses with shock absorbing lanyards attached will be used. There are times when the limited use of safety harnesses with standard lanyards or rebar chain assemblies is acceptable. They will be used only as expressly permitted by the Project Superintendent and C.R. Leonard Safety Department.

When Personal Fall Protection is required, these rules must be followed:
EXCAVATIONS
HOUSEKEEPING
