MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast
Episode #58 | Published November 8, 2021
According to the National Safety Council, following highway crashes, falls to a lower level is the third leading fatal workplace event and the fifth leading event resulting in cases with days away from work.
In many cases fall protection is relatively simple. Put up some sort of engineering control that prevents the workers from access the unprotected edge – like guardrails. Other times, the work being done requires a personal fall arrest system with the anchor located at or near floor level. Not all systems can do this and making the wrong choice can be fatal.
On this episode of the MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast, I speak with David Kozlowsky, President and Owner of Safe Approach in Poland, Maine about the leading edge in fall protection and what goes into picking the right system.
