Maintenance managers have a number of options for protecting workers from falls. They include conventional systems, such as guardrails, safety nets, and personal fall-protection systems, fall-arrest systems, positioning systems, and travel-restraint systems. Proper training and the use of safe work practices can increase the effectiveness of this equipment.
