Buildings or objects where work needs to be carried out are not always provided with fall protection. Guidelines for working at height are:
- Avoid working at height if possible;
- If working at height can not be avoided, use other means such as safety rails to prevent falls;
- Use PPEs to avoid dangerous situations;
- Use personal fall protection that minimizes the distance and force of the fall in the event of a fall.
