Session 1: The Forgotten Aspect of Fall Protection –The Silent Killer and Disabler
Date & Time
Wednesday, April 27, 2022, 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Many, when they hear or see a class on fall protection, they might think “I work in an office – I don’t need fall protection!” The vision comes to their mind of themselves sitting at a desk with a fall protection harness on and a lanyard attached to a desk handle drawer. That is ridiculous! We do a pretty good job when it comes to fall protection from heights but what about falls on the same level? That is, the slips and trips happening on the same level in an office or at a job site, which cause over 240,000 lost time or disabling injuries or fatal injuries. Hear the speaker’s personal story of a fall that happened to him at last year’s facilities show that caused him to be off work for 8+ months.
