How to Conduct an Elevated Worksite Analysis
In crafting a fall protection plan, a company should develop a written Elevated Work Site Analysis (EWSA) for every known area where a worker may be subjected to a fall from a walking/working surface to the ground or an object below. Two very important elements often overlooked in an Elevated Work Site Analysis is the method of access and rescue, should the worker need medical assistance. All relative parties, such as the at-risk worker, Company’s Competent Person in Fall Protection and trained rescuers, to name a few, should be included in an EWSA.
