The American Society of Safety Engineers will offer an interactive live webinar titled, “Understanding a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program and Personnel Key to Its Development and Implementation,” on August 18 at 11:00 a.m. CDT, according to an ASSE press release. The webinar will feature speakers Randall Wingfield, chairman of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z359 Accredited Standards Committee and chairman of the International Society for Fall Protection, as well as Thomas Kramer, chairman of the ANSI Z359.6 subcommittee on the design of active fall protection systems and the ANSI Z359.17 subcommittee on horizontal lifelines.

Key issues addressed during this webinar will be developing and implementing a comprehensive managed fall protection program as the most effective method to identify, evaluate and eliminate fall hazards.

Understanding the responsibilities of each aforementioned team members, limitations and training required is necessary for better formulating successful fall protection programs as addressed in this webinar.
