Protecting Workers from Falls – Join the Campaign

REGISTER Below to view the ONDemand Version 
This webinar occured on:  April 10, 2013

As the Safety Pays, Falls Cost campaign to stop construction falls enters its second year, construction safety leaders from OSHA, NIOSH and CPWR will discuss ways to fight the leading killer of construction workers—falls from heights.

Safety Pays. Falls Cost. The best in the business play it safe. Contractors can prevent falls from heights on their worksites by:

  • Planning ahead to do the job safely before starting each and every job.
  • Providing the right equipment for working at heights.
  • Training workers to use the equipment properly and to work safely on roofs, ladders, and scaffolds.

Find out about resources to plan ahead, provide the right equipment, and train workers on ways to prevent falls. Participants will learn how they can partner with the campaign and make preventing hazards within their reach.
