Fall protection is complex and one of the most significant issues faced by employers and worksite supervisors. With over 100,000 fall-related incidents in refineries and surrounding the petrochemical industry per year, falls from heights almost always result in at the very least, serious injury. In the oil and gas/petrochemical industry the lack of proper fall protection has proven to result in serious physical and monetary consequences and often can result in one or more fatalities.
