In order of most effective and preferred control measures for the protection workers:

  1. Hazard Elimination
    Remove all possible exposure to fall hazards. This is not possible in situations where people
    have to work at height.
  2. Passive Fall ProtectionPermanent physical barriers such as guardrail, walkway, or skylight mesh. Passive systems do not require active worker engagement.
  3. Active Fall Restraint Systems
    Use of a harness attached to an anchor point or static line to restrain a person from reaching
    a position where they could fall over an edge.
  4. Active Fall Arrest Systems
    Designed to reduce the distance and impact of a fall. Such systems include use of an
    energy absorber harness, anchor points and rigid rail.
  5. Administrative controls
    Creates awareness of the hazard through the use of signs, training, policies. This is the
    least preferred method of fall prevention.

According to the Federal Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011, any risk of a fall by a person
from one level to another, that is reasonably likely to cause injury, must be managed by
minimising risk as far as reasonably practicable.

and re-certification by a competent, trained height safety certifier within the following specified
time intervals:

Safety Harnesses
Safety Harnesses and lanyards are to be inspected every 6 months.

Anchor points, Static Line, Fall Arrest Systems
These systems require inspection and re-certification by a qualified height safety certifier every
12 months.

Guardrail, Walkway, Ladder systems, and other Height Safety and Access Systems
It is recommended by the manufacturers that these systems are inspected and re-certified by a
qualified height safety certifier every 12 months.
