Unfortunately, there’s more to worry about than just citations here. Fatal falls to a lower level have been steadily rising since 2011, reaching 401 in 2019, accounting for more than 1 in 3 construction deaths that year.  

These deaths are preventable, and it’s incumbent upon employers to ensure that protections are in place and their workers are trained in fall safety.
