“DON’T HIT THE GROUND” –

OCTOBER IS RESIDENTIAL FALfall protection bannerL PROTECTION SAFETY MONTH

Residential construction has unique challenges when it comes to fall protection. NICA has received funding & support from the Safety and Health Investment projects program at the Department of Labor and Industries and has been joined by BIAW to bring you answers and solutions to keep you safe and working.

We’ve chosen the month of October for a special awareness campaign.  Learn best practices and practical solutions to issues you face in residential construction through our new video “Don’t Hit the Ground,” classroom training, and hands on demonstrations of fall protection equipment.

Take the month to look at your company’s fall protection written plan and job site procedures. Please join us at one of the FREE special training events in October by clicking on our class calendar page. For additional resources in English and Spanish see the links below.

UPGRADE YOUR FALL PROTECTION PLAN!

As you start the new year, supercharge your safety program by using the NICA monthly safety plan as a basis for your weekly safety program.    Though this does not cover every aspect of residential construction, it includes 12 written plans such as Accident Prevention, Fall Protection, PPE, Heat Stress, Respiratory, GHS HAZCOM, and Excavation and Trenching.

2014-Safety-Plan-CoverThe purpose of the plan is to help your company build a safety culture, rather than just struggling to comply.

The plan won’t do you any good unless you actually ‘do’ the things inside, so take the time not only to read each section, but to thoroughly train your employees and provide them with the proper PPE and equipment to safely do their jobs.

This plan has a digital format you can download from nicasafety.com with live links to training resources, forms, and other materials.   We also will have copies of the printed calendar version available at Contractor Training Days (you can get multiple copies).  We will not be able to send out copies, you must download the calendar or attend a FREE Contractor Training Day to get your copies.
