Smyrna, GA.: Fall Protection has become one of the most misunderstood and underutilized safety controls in the light commercial and residential building industry. Much of the difficulty is in training. Many workers in these fields are primarily Spanish speakers. These workers are proficient at their craft but lack a true understanding of the dangers associated with working at higher altitudes. Most companies only provide safety instruction in English. This leads to a lack of true understanding of the safety rules in the field.
