In 2015 there were over 37,000 violations in the top 10 alone, meaning too many workers in the United States still risk their lives unnecessarily. More than 20% of those violations involved not meeting fall protection requirements. Not only for employees working on roofs, but also those working on scaffolds. In fact, falls from height were a leading cause of death for construction workers. Last year 381 fatal fall accidents were reported to OSHA, 29 of which involved scaffolding. All those deaths could have been prevented.
