CONSULTIING / PLANT ANALYSIS
Consulting / Fall Hazard Analysis
As active members in the field of Fall Protection and educators, we are exposed to all aspects of fall safety. ISM instructors and consultants remain abreast of the latest developments in fall protection and rescue. We can provide general consulting to meet any need which can include tool crib analysis, stand by rescue, and many more.
Some larger organizations have benefitted from keeping ISM on retainer on a monthly basis. In such a situation an in depth Fall Protection program is initiated and implemented.
ISM can perform a site analysis of your work environment. A complete analysis will consist of an on-site tour, review of present fall protection equipment and procedures, interviews with workers and safety officers, and (possibly) discussions with applicable government regulators. When completed, the survey document will detail fall hazards, outline areas of deficiency and provide recommendations for addressing all fall hazard concerns.
Fall Protection is much more than giving employees a harness & lanyard and instructing them to tie off. Both worker and management education is key. ISM's objective when helping in providing Fall Protection is to provide solutions in the following order.
- Fall Prevention
- Travel Restricting
- Fall Arrest
Fall Prevention is always the priority, if this is unachievable, Travel Restricting is considered.
Finally, and as a last resort, the use of Fall Arrest methodology is considered. The analysis and resulting report also address Post Fall Rescue.
