At Fixfast USA our vision is to ensure those working at heights return home safely and our mission is to provide maximum safety and minimum fuss to workers at height. We have developed a program called High 5 to help individuals get home by ensuring that the roofs they are working on are safe.
Falls from heights are among the most common causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths. Between 2003 and 2013, falls were the leading cause of death in the construction industry. Throughout that time, 34% of the deaths were made up of falls from roofs. More recently in 2016, 370 of the 991 fatalities recorded were caused by falls from heights. All of these deaths are preventable.
When performing a safe access and or fall protection audit on your facility, it can seem like an overwhelmingly complex task. This simple, complete, five step program allows you to quickly and easily determine where the hazards are and how to address them. This program ensures access methods, access points, typical roof hazards, and leading edges are analyzed in a systematic manner.
