Fall Protection Forum: Is Your Fall Protection Program Ready?

As fall protection continues to be a challenge for many organizations, the Gulf Coast Safety Institute and LJB Inc. are sponsoring this forum to facilitate sharing best practices, debating ideas and brainstorming new solutions, while benchmarking your program against others.

For this session, we will discuss industry best practices for each core element of a fall protection program. Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of industry best practices, as well as how other organizations handle various aspects of a fall protection program. The group will discuss the spectrum of possibilities—from basic compliance to a model program—and how to improve your existing program.

Please plan to join Gulf Coast Safety Institute and LJB Inc. on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. to learn more about protecting your workers and your organizations from fall risk.

Registration and lunch are complementary for all registered participants. Registration is limited and will close on Friday, February 5.
