Preventing falls—the leading cause of death in construction-related industries—will be the focus of a free webinar Thursday (Feb. 24) co-sponsored by JPCL and SSPC.
The Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings and the Society for Protective Coatings will present “Assuring Fall Protection When Working at Heights” from 11 a.m. to noon EDT Thursday.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration Construction Industry Fall Protection Standard requires that workers be protected from fall hazards on construction sites. Proper planning for, and use of, fall protection is critical to protect workers from this hazard.
Presenter Stan Liang, of KTA-Tator Inc., will provide an overview of what employers should consider when implementing a safety program to control workplace fall hazards.
