Free OSHA Fall Protection Training

The Fall Training below is filling up fast but we still have openings.  This is a great opportunity to have you and your employees receive free training on fall protection.  The intent of fall protection is to save lives and prevent injuries.

Many workers are killed each year from falls off of roofs. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 350 of the 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable.

Prevent the needless suffering of workers, their families and coworkers—be sure all employees are using fall protection.  We are here to help you sort out the requirements and protect your workers.
