Fall Protection Forum

What is a Competent Person?
Thursday, 7/16/15, 11am - 1pm

As fall protection continues to be a challenge for many organizations, the Gulf Coast Safety Institute and LJB Inc. have sponsored this forum to facilitate sharing best practices, debating ideas and brainstorming new solutions, while benchmarking your program against others. During the kick-off session of this Fall Protection Forum, we will discuss the topic: What is a Competent Person? How does your organization determine who is competent or not? As a group, we’ll discuss the different roles and responsibilities given to Competent Persons and what level/type of training is required, among other concepts. Each session of the Fall Protection Forum will focus on a different topic, so at this kick-off session, we’ll be looking for your ideas for future topics.

Registration and lunch are complementary for all registered participants. Registration is limited and will close on Friday, July 10, 2015.
