This webinar occurred on:  June 24, 2015

Protecting workers that must work at height can be daunting considering all the regulations, rules, and national standards (ANSI, NFPA, etc.) that may apply. OSHA alone actually has 19 regulations just within General Industry and Construction that address fall protection – and that’s discounting shipyard employment, marine terminals and the longshoring industry!

This webinar will briefly highlight important aspects of a few of those regulations within the realm of general industry and construction, but will mainly cover complying with the construction rules and their real world application. The presentation will grab your attention by showing both typical and atypical working at heights examples and how to safely maneuver the fall protection challenges that you may face.
