While many companies know they are required to provide fall protection to their employees in certain situations, too often how that protection is to be achieved is not thought about until the employee is exposed. This leads to unsafe, non-compliant solutions -- or no solution at all. When it comes to fall protection, planning is key. This presentation covers three aspects of fall protection to address when planning to protect your employees.

OSHA, the NIOSH NORA Construction Sector Council, and other safety authorities are very interested in preventing construction falls and the injuries and fatalities related to them. These falls peak during the summer months in the United States, with August being the month with the highest number of fall fatalities for residential construction, according to a 2004 study conducted for the National Association of Home Builders.

This webinar will discuss best practices and strategies for preventing falls in both commercial and residential construction.
