Why Should you Attend
Construction, maintenance, industrial, commercial and residential housing will all generally include a requirement at some point to reach an elevated location. In order to safely access the work area, we will often rely on ladders, staging, or powered lifts. Each has its own set of safety requirements and practices.

Falling while working at heights remains one of the leading causes of construction fatalities. Rarely does one result in no injury at all. Usually, if one is lucky, there are at least multiple broken bones and blunt force trauma injuries. In other words, not a pretty picture. Anything over 6 feet in the construction business will automatically trigger the need for some type of fall protection. This webinar will examine the most common mistakes made by tradespersons leading to their death or injury from a fall. And the sad truth is, it does not take much to cause this accident to occur.

OSHA has a large section on fall prevention, segmented into categories of exposure. This webinar will explore the major elements and learn best practices along the way. Multiple sources of information will be referenced to provide a data-base for building your own custom fall protection program. Ladders and climbing hardware will be discussed, along with aerial telescoping lifts and bucket trucks. Use of safety harnesses, lanyards, anchorage points, inspections and hardware will be referenced generally.
