Track 2: Fall Prevention Strategies

10:00 am
Fall Protection Equipment is Great! (Unless You Misuse It):
Tips, Tricks & Pitfalls. Nolan Miller, PE, CSP, Principal/Project Manager, LJB, Inc.

Fall protection equipment is the most visible aspect of a fall protection program, and it can be the most costly as well. Unfortunately, these investments can be essentially poured down the drain when workers misuse, “cheat,” or ignore the intended use of the equipment. This presentation covers some of the most common fall protection equipment misuse topics, including best practices for leading edge work. After showing what the misuse looks like, the presenter will provide recommendations on how to overcome these challenges on the job site.

11:00 am
Don't be a Fall Protection Dummy! Chris Rohlfs, HD Supply/White Cap

We all know that fall protection equipment, if worn correctly, can save a life. The problem is that some people don't follow their training on how to wear the equipment. When this happens employees are at a greater risk for harm if they were to fall. This session will cover the do's and don'ts of wearing fall protection and tips for how to get your employees to understand what happens when they don't. This presentation will include a demonstration of what might happen.

Track 3: Construction Hot Topics

10:00 am
Confined Spaces:Safe Entry or Not? John Cherry, 3C Asset Management, LLC

Who are the three main types of workers in a confined space and what are their rolls? When do you need on-call or stand-by rescue? The answers to these questions are only the beginning of a good safety program for confined spaces. Join us to find out how to make your program great!

Trench Safety: Why is this an OSHA National Emphasis Program? Greg Smith, CSP, Principal, Vector Risk & Safety
