Open discussion on fall protection and the Ironworker Foremen Fall Protection Training Course for Supervisors

Wednesday, November 17, 2021
1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. E.S.T. 


The Iron Workers safety and health department, in partnership with the 3M™ Personal Safety Division, developed the Foremen Fall Protection Training Course to provide foremen and contractors with a free 4-hour training session to address falls, one of the Iron Workers' deadly dozen hazards. 
 
The first pilot program, conducted on August 26, 2021, at Iron Workers Local 86 training facility (Seattle), is designed for foremen/supervisors designated for managing the steel erection process to recognize common fall hazard conditions and methods of control. Contractor management representatives are also encouraged to participate in the training and understand the use of the latest products.
