Escape and Rescue in the Construction Industry
Year after year, falls continue to be one of the most common workplace injuries. Employers make efforts to protect their employees by eliminating the need to go to heights or putting in place measures to protect workers from a risk of a fall. On construction sites these efforts alone will not protect all workers as employees will still need to work in situations where they are exposed to a potential fall. When we place workers in these situations, we need to make sure there is a way to get them down or rescue them.
The webinar session will look at aspects of an effective rescue plan, how a plan can be successful, and will identify the ABC’s of rescue including how a simple item added to each harness could aid the fallen worker.
