Falling from heights remains one of the most common causes of workplace fatalities in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, of 1,008 deaths in construction in a recent year, 320 were due to falls from heights.
In spite of all other efforts to protect workers, the proper use and selection of fall protection continues to be a struggle for many organizations.
To develop an effective fall protection strategy for their organization, safety professionals can rely on the ANSI/ASSP Z359 Fall Protection and Fall Restraint standards, which identify the best and most current methodologies for organizations to follow when developing fall protection programs.
Join us on July 23 for a free webinar that will help you determine whether your company has the best fall protection for your applications and will help you answer some of the most important issues you face. Presenter Kathleen Dobson, will highlight strategies for establishing a comprehensive managed fall protection program and will focus on practical approaches for fall protection.
