original post Below:

Drive through a new housing subdivision under construction in your area. Look at the employees working at a raised elevation. Do an informal survey, and keep track of how many are working at a raised height and how many have personal fall arrest systems (PFAS) in place. What is the ratio? Discuss one such worksite, either good or bad, and why you chose it.

Good morning,

I work 50 to 60 hours per week in the railroad construction industry and most of the time I work from dusk til dawn. I mention this because unless a jobsite is present on my commute I do not have time to seek out a jobsite utilizing fall protection. I can however let you know in the railroad industry we utilize stringent fall protection when constructing bridges or maintenance of bridges. The guidelines for fall protection with the Federal Railroad Administration are a little different then OSHA. The FRA on bridge constructions specifically sites a 12 ft above ground or water requirement, when OSHA states 8ft. In either instance I would hope that anyone at or above 8 ft would comply and be held accountable by there supervisors.
