Workers in many sectors of our industry are highly exposed to the risk of falls from heights which can cause more or less serious and sometimes irreversible injuries. Employers must therefore take the necessary measures to guarantee their safety, in accordance with Canadian law. The country's authorities are adopting a zero tolerance policy for those who do not respect the imposed regulations: immediate cessation of work or even criminal prosecution.
Measures to be taken to ensure the safety of workers working at heights
Here are the regulations to follow to limit the risk of work-related accidents.
Install a guardrail
The guardrail is a piece of safety equipment used to delimit a work area at height, especially on the roof. It is designed according to strict resistance standards. In addition, it is mandatory to place warning lines in the event that it is necessary to remove part of the guardrail in order to continue the work.
