Safety planning plays a key role in protecting workers from fall hazards on a construction site. Employers can now use a new fillable template and companion guide to help create fall protection plans that meet the different needs of every worksite.
The fillable template* and companion guide are designed to help you create a fall protection plan to use and share with your workers. The companion guide will support you in making sure your plan is complete and accurate. In it, you will learn more about the following sections of the fillable template:
The guide also covers planning considerations and legislative requirements to keep in mind. For more information about keeping workers safe while working at heights, see the Falls from elevation and Fall protection webpages.
*Please note: The Fall Protection Plan template replaces the toolbox meeting guide, Written site-specific fall protection plan (TG 06-48), which has now been retired from worksafebc.com.
