Aerial Lift Electrocution

UPDATE: Worker Killed in Mill Accident

The coroner’s office identified the victim of yesterday’s industrial accident as 64-year-old Mike Vander Veen of Forest Hill, California.

OSHA requires that all persons who use any powered (battery or internal combustion engine) materials handling equipment must be certified before they use the equipment and recertified every 3 years after initial certification.

So what happens if your company doesn’t recertify an employee?

I just found this great blog about Fall protection and costs:

Thought I’d share here for your review. Here’s a snippet:

When comparing the general costs of a fall protection system to the expenses associated with a workplace fall, it’s clear that the fall protection system is the cheaper option. Yes, there are initial costs. But no, it is not as expensive as having a worker fall.
