Fall Prevention and Protection Word Game (1926.501)


Every year, fall protection is on OSHA’s list of the Top Ten Most Cited Violations.

And falls are also always a significant contributor to workplace injuries and fatalities as well.

Playing a fall prevention and protection word game won’t solve all those problems. We need better training, more onsite observations, more detail to incident report, and more.

But that said, this word game can help remind you of some important issues related to fall prevention and protection. And it’s fun, too, so you might want to use this in your next safety meeting.

Here’s the game. It’s based on the OSHA reg, so you should be familiar with it and it should be relevant to you.


If you want to download this game, you can. Just click the download button below.

Please note, though, that what you’ll download is a zipped folder in a format called SCORM. You can’t just open the folder and “play” the game that way. Instead, what you CAN do is take that zipped folder, import it into your SCORM-compliant LMS, and then play it from the LMS. So if you want to download and play this game, you need a SCORM-compliant LMS.

If you need more information about that, check out these two articles:

Of course, if you don’t have an LMS, or just don’t want to use it, you can always come back to this page of the Convergence Training blog and play the game here.

But if you DO have a SCORM-compliant LMS, go ahead and download that word game.
