As fall protection consultants, we live and breathe fall protection and various nuances the issue presents. But, when we attend conferences, we come face-to-face with the reality that the numerous regulations, standards, equipment options, training sources and priorities are extremely difficult for safety professionals to navigate and balance.
At safety conferences this spring in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Hawaii, we have shared information, discussed challenges, debated issues, provided recommendations, and considered new ideas. If you’re struggling with fall protection issues—believe me—you’re not alone. We applaud all those we’ve talked to this spring who are fighting through the confusion to protect workers at heights. We know it’s not an easy task, but it is vitally important to make sure workers go home to their families.
Even if you didn’t attend, you can still benefit from some of the presentations we gave at conferences in recent months. You can review handouts online for our presentations at PacRim Safety & Health Conference and the Ohio Safety Congress.
