Every day, employees fall. Some of them slip on wet flooring. Others lose their balance on portable ladders. Still others may trip on some trash that's been left in a walkway, or step off an "edge" they didn't even know was there. Workplace falls cause almost 20% of disabling occupational injuries, and thousands of fatalities every year... but falls can be prevented.

MARCOM's updated "Fall Protection in Industrial and Construction Environments" training products review the different types of fall hazards that employees can encounter in a workplace and discuss the equipment and safe work practices they should use to avoid them.
