Principals of Fall Protection

There are 3 main principles to consider when planning for working at height.

Avoidance

Consider all reasonable alternatives for the work not to be performed at height if practical or possible.

Prevention

If the work must be performed at height deploy the appropriate preventative measures and work restraint systems.

Mitigation

In circumstances where the risk of falling cannot be prevented, consider the use of netting or other soft landing equipment together with a suitably developed work positioning and/or fall arrest system using the appropriate fall protection equipment.
