An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Mining- Surface Coal - Fall Protection Program

Company Policy

      Injuries from falls are a leading occupational injury. It is the intent of Replace with Company Name to provide maximum protection to its staff in the prevention of falls. Known fall hazards will be identified, inspected and fall protection provided to ensure the safety of personnel. Engineering controls, administrative procedures and the use of personal protective equipment will be utilized. The Fall Protection Standard must be followed where personnel can possibly fall six feet or more.  [1]  Under MSHA's interpretation, “rounds & readings” work conducted within six feet of an unprotected edge (i.e. roof line/ floor diaphragm) must comply with the Fall Protection Standard. 


      Training in fall protection must be obtained prior to working where potential for a fall exists. This training will be conducted by an authorized training resource. Any person required to perform a task must receive appropriate task training to ensure knowledge and ability to perform the task safely.  [3]  Training will consist of learning to identify fall hazards, minimize fall hazards, and the function, use, inspection, and maintenance of personal fall arrest systems (PFAS) and other restraint equipment. Trainees will also be taught how to identify and inspect anchor points, substantial members of the building structure, or securely rigged lines, which will safely suspend the worker in case of fall. Only attendees of the fall hazard training classes will be allowed to conduct work where potential for a fall exists.   Training shall be provided by Replace with Company Name to all affected workers before they are exposed to fall hazards.  Retraining shall occur when any of the following are noted:

       Deficiencies in training

      Workplace changes

      Fall Protection Systems or equipment changes that render previous training obsolete.      

     Workers who complete fall protection training will have written training certification showing at a minimum the following:
