Fall Protection Program

The Fall Protection Program was developed by the Environmental Health and Safety department at NIU to ensure a safe work environment and to protect the health and safety of NIU faculty and staff. 

This fall protection program includes guidelines to be followed whenever an employee works at heights above 6 feet. These guidelines were established to ensure safety and to maintain compliance with the 29 CFR 1926 Subpart M, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fall protection standards.
