Fall Prevention Training Saves Lives

Campaign to stop falls in constructionAs a participant in OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls, ladder manufacturer Werner Co. held more than 200 events that provided fall protection and ladder safety training to more than 34,000 workers across the United States and Canada. Recently, two Miami workers who received training were saved from a fatal fall while inspecting a high-rise building. The workers were wearing personal fall arrest systems when the suspended scaffold they were on collapsed. For more information on preventing falls, visit the Fall Prevention webpage.
