WalkSafe: Falls from Short Distances Tip Sheet
Search the Library
One of the most dangerous types of falls from elevation are those from very short distances — less than 4 feet. It’s at these distances (off of a small step stool, step ladder, chair, table, etc.) that fall protection is not required by OSHA. However, losing your balance when working from these heights can lead to major head, neck, hip, arm, foot and knee injuries. This is because in most instances, reaction times are not fast enough to protect your from a fall.
