START TIME:2:00 PM EDT
Falls are the number #1 killer in construction. We need to learn from fall incidents to prevent fatalities. Elimination techniques are the most successful way to prevent falls. Prevention through railings and restraint equipment is next in the hierarchy, and fall arrest systems are third in the hierarchy.
We will look at several applications including: flatbed trucks during loading and tarping, skylights, low slope roofs, holes, edges, and anchor points for window cleaning.
- The law and best industry practices, not just OSHA
- Fall protection equipment and how to use it properly
- The ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code
- Upgrade your Fall Protection Program yearly and after every incident

EFSS has recently completed an overhaul of our entire website. In addition to an exciting new look, www.FallSafety.com is now easier to navigate and offers even more information and resources. Please continue to visit us weekly for fall protection news items and tips here, at Posts. And don’t worry, all previous “What’s New” articles remain available at a link under the Learning Center tab and now can be sorted by topic/category.
We hope you continue to turn to www.FallSafety.com as your fall protection information resource and that you continue to turn to EFSS for all your fall protection needs.
