According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), over the past 10 years, at least, an average of 346 workers were killed from falls, slips, and trips, and nonfatal injuries and illnesses that resulted from falls, slips, and trips occurred at a rate of 31.4 per 10,000 full-time workers in 2020. Moreover, fall protection violations continue to be among the most cited standards in the construction industry, consistently topping the list of OSHA’s most frequently cited violations.
AGC of America, supported by a Susan Harwood Training Grant, is pleased to offer this one-day Fall Prevention in Construction safety training based on OSHA standards and best practices to answer the need for quality training within the industry. Training is free, online, and attendees will receive a certificate of participation upon completion. Attendees will also have the opportunity to earn continuing education credits.
