We said in our previous issue that inattention is a major contributor to fall-related injuries. When moving from a secure point (where you're attached by a lanyard) to another point, carefully examine where you're going before moving there. Don't let your mind wander to your after work plans (a fall will ruin those plans, anyhow), and definitely don't be on your cell phone. Don't even discuss the work. Focus entirely on getting safely from where you are now to where you are going.
We also said in our previous issue that some dangers aren't your fault. However, many people assume because a danger exists there's nothing they can do about it. The reality is that anyone working at height can eliminate fall hazards. Let's look at a few aspects of doing so.
