Fall protection regulations for Illinois workers

Workers in Illinois can be seriously injured in a variety of ways on a worksite. Construction workers, in particular, are at great risk for workplace accidents. These accidents include falls. Falling from great heights, falling off equipment or falling into a hole can result in serious injuries for workers. It is important for workers to take specific fall protection precautions in order to reduce the risk of workplace falls. It is up to the employer to put these safety precautions in place.
