Alternate Fall Protection Safety Plans for Residential Foundations
The Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) dramatically influenced the cast-in-place concrete industry in 2010 with the mandate for fall protection implementation. Employers are left with two alternatives: 1) implement an active fall protection system to a temporary construction condition or 2) create a vital training and safety program for the workforce based on knowledge, awareness and monitoring. Identified as a legitimate option in 1926.502 subpart k, the alternative fall protection plan takes considerable effort for management to implement but may be best solution to combine effectiveness to eliminate severe accidents from falls along with reducing work-related injuries for work comp cases. Note: This seminar would qualify for prep coursework to the ACI/CFA Residential Foundation Certification Exam.
