Department of Labor Doubles Down
OSHA is committed to reducing the leading cause of worker fatality in the construction industry. The sixth annual National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction will be held May 6th through the 10th of this year. They have also employed a Fall Prevention Training Guide to help employers train employees on risks and hazards with weekly/monthly toolbox talks. OSHA has also committed themselves to General industry standard improvements. Phasing out ladder cages and replacing them with personal fall arrest systems is a high priority which can significantly reduce injuries and death in the workplace. For more on the standards implementation please click here.
Do you have anyone working over six feet above the ground on your construction site? If so Fall Protection training is vital to worker safety. In general industry the standard is only four feet! OSHA requires that employers provide fall protection and the right equipment for the job to keep workers safe. This includes appropriate ladders for each job, scaffolds and safety equipment like harnesses and anchors. Training on the use of the safety equipment is also required. Any training received should be good for 2 years. However, if new equipment is needed for job safety then training must be conducted to accommodate for the change.
When was the last time you held a fall protection training for your staff? Finding time to complete training courses can be difficult. Depending on your level of risk we maybe able to tailor a class that fits your needs in a much shorter time than it would take to train someone who is working on billboards.

How can proActive Safety Services help us achieve our safety goals?
We have experience assisting companies with less than 5 employees to working with giant corporate companies like DHL. We have found that every situation is a little bit different. We offer a free safety assessment that can help us determine the gaps in your current program. From that assessment we are able to work together to develop a strategy to meet your goals. We have a team of 10 safety professionals and access to a network of over 5 senior safety directors within our community.
Does proActive Safety Services Offer Private Training Courses?
We specialize in delivering private training courses. In fact, we have sold more custom training courses that OSHA Outreach Training courses. Complete custom classes can get pretty expensive. However, it is easy to add in photos of your facilities, videos you may currently use, or any other custom content you feel is necessary. The best way to develop a custom course is to create Job Safety Analysis for each job type. It is simple for us at that point to develop a training program that covers the hazard your employees will face.
