Hard Hat VR: Fall Protection

The average height of a single story construction project is about 14 feet. While this may not seem like much, a fall from this height can cause serious damage; 4 out 5 falls from over 11 feet end in death. In fact, 1,008 workers died as a result of workplace falls in 2018. 33.5% of these deaths were in construction, making fatal falls OSHA's number one accident that can occur on the jobsite. However, fatal falls are 100% avoidable.
