To kick off this year’s National Ladder Safety Month, we will be discussing OSHA’s program (Plan, Provide, Train) and how you can apply to ladder safety to prevent injuries and save lives.
When working from heights, employers must plan projects to ensure the job is done safely. Begin by deciding how the job will be done, what tasks will be involved, and what safety equipment may be needed to complete each task.
Workers who are six feet or more above lower levels are at risk for serious injury or death if they should fall. To protect these workers, employers must provide fall protection and the right equipment for the job, including the right kinds of ladders, scaffolds, and safety gear.
Every worker should be trained on proper set-up and safe use of equipment they use on the job. Employers must train workers in recognizing hazards on the job.
Attendees will learn advanced planning and training techniques and principles. You will also learn about the latest innovations in fall protection, fall prevention and ladder safety from several manufacturers.
