Fall Protection – The More You Know: Understanding and Addressing Fall Risk
People accept all types of risks—such as flying, eating red meat, smoking—in part, because they understand what the risks are and believe the benefits outweigh the risks. With fall protection, people often assume that “tied off” equals protected, and overlook the risks associated with fall clearance, suspension trauma, swing fall, equipment misuse and limitations. This webinar illuminates the variety of variables involved in truly understanding fall risk. Participants will be armed with better information—as well as tips on fully understanding your unique risk—in order to make better choices.
