Height Safety Inspection Checklist

Conduct a careful inspection of your construction site’s height safety to ensure all workers are operating within safe working environments. Make sure there is a clear understanding of the anchorage plan layout, installation safety manual, emergency rescue plans, etc. Ensure the cables are properly installed onto equipment, load tests have been conducted, anchorages are accessible, and more to eliminate potential fall hazards. Customize this form to accommodate the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements specific to your construction zone. Use this mobile checklist in both on and offline environments.
