Register for Local Fall Prevention Courses

Filed in Education, Labor, Safety and Health by on July 5, 2018 0 Comments

Workers falling from structures, roofs, ladders and scaffolding continue to be the leading cause of injuries and fatalities in the residential construction industry.

The Job-Site Safety Institute (JSI) is working with NAHB to offer local HBAs an educational course, Fall Prevention in Residential Construction, to help prevent costly injuries, and worse, on build sites.

The training programs will help employees and employers identify and avoid fall hazards encountered during home building operations, the prevention of falls, solutions to protect against and arrest falls, and the rescue of a fallen worker.
