OSHA Walking-Working Standards: The Time for Training is Now

Print

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Training, training, training – As a health and safety professional, you are responsible for ensuring your employees return home safe each night. Training is a constant part of protecting your work force and your company’s integrity.…

As you probably know, effective January 17, 2017, the new OSHA Walking Working final rule adds requirements that employers ensure workers who use personal fall protection and work in other specified high hazard situations receive training. This training has to include a combination of classroom study and practical hands on instruction specifically as it relates to “installing, inspecting, operating, maintaining, and disassembling the personal fall protection systems.”

Join Us at the Southern California Safety Showcase

We invite you to join us on April 25th and 26th for 3M’s Southern California Safety Showcase for two days of events, demonstrations and training opportunities to help you achieve compliance.

This course offers an awareness of the issues involved with fall protection, specifically on the new changes to OSHA Walking Working Surfaces 1910 standard. We will also be offering:

  • Dropped objects demonstrations
  • Truck demonstration: 3M’s fall protection specialist will be on hand to conduct a demonstration on the forces generated in a fall and to review the “A, B, C, D’s of fall protection
  • Rescue demonstrations for falls from heights
  • Free E-A-R fit testing

All participants will have the opportunity to see the latest in PPE safety equipment ranging from respiratory to fall protection, experience our Orange County training facility and take home a few free items. You should also evaluate your current inventory to see if there are items you can trade-in and trade-up!

Additionally, we will have 3M technical and training specialists on hand to answer any questions you might have about safety equipment, industry standards/regulations and how to take advantage of our Orange County training center to help train your workers. And, free food trucks will be on site each day so you can grab a bite while you participate in the showcase.

BONUS: All completed registrations will be eligible for our prize drawing for a free IPad (one each day) and will also receive a sample PPE kit with a value of $100.
