  • About temporary and permanently installed devices available for fall protection and fall restraint
  • About procedures for designing fall protection systems
  • How to design skylights and retrofit existing skylights for fall protection

A thorough understanding of fall protection (elimination, prevention, or arrest) is invaluable for everyone involved with the design, construction, or maintenance of buildings where there may be a risk associated with working at height. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, falls account for 8% of all work-related trauma injuries leading to death. Undoubtedly, the number of workers whose lives are temporarily or permanently impacted by fall-related injuries are even more significant.

This is your chance to learn about fall protection regulations for new and exiting buildings, for construction and maintenance, from a panel of industry experts! Your clients look to you for solid advice; equip yourself with the facts. Don't miss this seminar. Here are the details:
