Fatal Workplace Falls are on the Rise: Understanding Equipment Testing vs. Field Use

Over the last ten years we have seen an increase in two critical metrics in fall protection:

  1. The number of standards comprising the Z359 Code.
  2. The number of fatal workplace falls.

Have we created the most effective standards possible, or do we have an opportunity to improve?

With the proliferation of all manner of new Self-Retracting Devices, we are seeing new products encouraging old behaviors, and the injuries and fatalities continue to mount. In this webinar, we will examine together a combination of product classes, behaviors, and look for opportunities to qualify both product selections and practices in order to appreciate the safest outcomes.
