Safeopedia Explains Safety Monitoring

Safety monitoring is vital in work situations that involve the potential for falls. The appointed safety monitor must have the training and experience to identify hazards and unsafe behaviors, as well as the authority to take action and correct the hazard or at-risk behavior.

The safety monitor has overall responsibility for safety in the workplace. In terms of fall safety, he or she must be constantly aware of workers who are backing up to an edge or leaning over it when they should be kneeling.
