Prevent Fall Fatalities with Elimination Techniques

ON DEMAND UNTIL MARCH 31, 2021

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Falls are the number #1 killer in construction. We need to learn from fall incidents to prevent fatalities. Elimination techniques are the most successful way to prevent falls. Prevention through railings and restraint equipment is next in the hierarchy, and fall arrest systems are third in the hierarchy.

We will look at several applications including: flatbed trucks during loading and tarping, skylights, low slope roofs, holes, edges, and anchor points for window cleaning.

  • The law and best industry practices, not just OSHA
  • Fall protection equipment and how to use it properly
  • The ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code
  • Upgrade your Fall Protection Program yearly and after every incident
