A worker in a manufacturing plant doesn’t need a lot of instruction to properly use safety glasses or a hard hat, but using a safety harness in a way that will save your life, is just not as intuitive. Evidence of this misuse of fall protection equipment can be seen at nearly any construction site, among other places.
A consistently safe environment for your workers can be achieved by stepping back from the daily routine, setting priorities, and building a manageable and sustainable program—one that includes the critical step of PPE training for anyone using fall protection equipment.
LJB has scheduled a comprehensive competent person training course for Feb. 8-12. This course is available for open enrollment, so anyone can participate if you are in need of training. Please visit www.ljbinc.com/training for more information.
