Upcoming Webinar: Residential Fall Protection


When: May 12, 2020 9:00 AM Saskatchewan 


What: Residential Fall Protection. This webinar is hosted by the SCSA, the Regina and Region Home Builders' Association, Saskatoon & Region Home Builders' Association for Certified Professional Home Builders (CPHB).

Why it is Important: Falls cause a large number of injuries in the construction industry.  About half those injuries were time loss injuries with a total  injury cost  into the tens of millions of dollars. This increases the cost of every project and those costs are eventually passed on to home buyers.

Many of these residential construction injuries are preventable.  Workers should always be outfitted with safety gear appropriate for the job they are doing.  Equipment should be inspected daily, and any worn or damaged equipment should be replaced.  

This webinar will talk about fall protection in the residential construction sector and share specific strategies and tactics for reducing injuries from falls.

SCSA Advisors and panelists will provide time for a question and answer session.
