Fall Prevention Class Now Offered Through NAHB

Filed in Codes and Standards, Education, Safety by on February 20, 2018 2 Comments

ladderAs part of a joint mission to keep employees and subs safer on the jobsite, NAHB, in partnership with the Job-Site Safety Institute, is providing free fall prevention training at HBAs for members across the country.

The four-hour Fall Prevention in Residential Construction training will be offered for the first time in Raleigh, N.C. on Feb. 28.

The training is designed to help employees and employers identify and avoid the common fall hazards on the jobsite with a focus on preventing accidents — as well as what to do if someone falls. Presenters will also demonstrate the correct use of personal protection systems, ladders and scaffolding.

This training program was produced under a grant from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration through the Job-Site Safety Institute. It is available in English or Spanish, and successful completion not only will make builders and trades more aware of potential hazards but also offer four continuing education credit hours for NAHB designations.

NAHB continues to seek HBAs interested in offering this course. For additional information, contact Chelsea Vetick.
