Fatality Assessment & Control Evaluation Program

Fall Prevention Tailgate Training Materials

The California Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program investigates work-related fatalities to identify the causes and prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. FACE has created fall prevention tailgate trainings with materials in English and Spanish.

Our tailgate planning and training cards cover four construction safety fall prevention topic areas: Skylights, Roofs, and Floor Openings; Step and Extension Ladder Safety; Scaffold Safety; and Fall Restraint/Fall Arrest Systems.

Each set of planning and training cards is meant to be paired with one of two short safety videos or “digital stories,” Preventing Falls Through Skylights, and Preventing Falls in the Solar Industry. Training materials also include instructions on how to use the cards and how to create your own tailgate training using topics contained in the Cal/OSHA Pocket Guide for the Construction Industry (PDF) (also available in Spanish), and a participant sign-in sheet. These cards are simple to use and are designed to improve the quality of tailgate trainings.
