Join NECA on Tuesday, September 15th, 11:00 AM for a webinar focused on falls from elevation in the construction industry. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 320 of the 1,008 construction fatalities recorded in 2018. In honor of OHSA’s National Safety Stand-Down to prevent falls in construction, this webinar, presented by NECA and the Electrical Training ALLIANCE with special guest Scott Ketcham, Director of OSHA’s Directorate of Construction, strives to raise fall hazard awareness across the country. This program will focus on both outside utility fall protection measures and construction fall protection for inside electrical contractors.
