Boak & Sons Hosts Fall Prevention Training Program on May 10
5/6/2017

Join us for this fall protection training event:

You are invited to join The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation in conjunction with Boak & Sons, Incorporated and RETTEW’s Safety Consulting Group for an OSHA Stand-Down Training Event.

Each year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) encourages employers across the country to participate in the National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls.  A stand-down is a break from the typical work duties for employers to talk directly to their workers about safety, focusing on fall hazards and reinforcing the importance of fall prevention. 

Training will focus on how to develop, implement and commit to a fall protection program, and how to identify all potential fall hazards before work starts. There will also be a fall rescue demonstration. 

When: Wednesday, May 10, 2017 – 7:30 – 8:30AM

Where: Boak & Sons, Incorporated, 75 Victoria Road, Austintown, Ohio 44515 (Large Warehouse)

 

Please RVSP to Dave Costantino as soon as possible to reserve your seating: David.C.12@bwc.state.oh.us or via cell phone at 330-301-5825.
