Abstract
Unprotected edges and overlooked hazards are often sites of fatal falls. One presenter will exhibit a unique, patent-pending design of an adjustable roof bracket that includes a guardrail system. The second presentation will show how Virtual Environment (or computer-simulated) technologies can help assess fall-related hazards, integrate fall protection systems and help implement fall prevention management protocols. CPWR will discuss an intervention project on ladder fall prevention for the construction industry called Don't Fall For It. The intervention, includes a short film and fact sheets based on OSHA standards in Part 1926 Subpart X of Safety and Health Regulations for the Construction industry serves as training that can be used for in many settings including toolbox talks, jobsite safety meetings, and training classes.
