Fall Arrest vs. Fall Restraint



Falls are one of the leading causes of injuries in the workplace. As you work to mitigate the dangers of falls in your facility by putting safeguards in place, keep the differences between arrest and restraint in mind: Fall arrest means to be caught while falling and fall restraint means to be restrained from falling in the first place.
