NRCA releases fall-protection compliance program
Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has released its
fall-protection compliance program, Serving up
Safety: A Recipe for Avoiding Falls on the Job, a video program
addressing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's
(OSHA's) fall-protection requirements for roofing work, including
requirements for state-plan states.
The comprehensive training program includes a DVD with six hours
of video content explaining fall-protection rules pertaining to
each of the 50 states, as well as a companion instructors guide,
student guide and student handout, regulatory excerpts from state
and federal agencies, a final examination tailored to specific
states, and a customizable certificate of completion.
The program is available in English and Spanish and discusses
terms and definitions, low- and steep-slope roofing, and
self-rescue and assisted rescue from falls. Additional resources
include federal OSHA regulations, as well as regulations from
states enforcing their own rules that differ from federal OSHA and
interpretations from each jurisdiction.
Serving up Safety: A Recipe for Avoiding Falls on the Job is $250
for NRCA members and $295 for nonmembers. For more information and
