Heavy D's Death Not Unheard of in Fall Protection Field

 Recently I read an article in the LA Times about the tragic death of 80’s rapper Heavy D; which forced me to think of all the people that we aim to protect on a daily basis. 



An autopsy revealed that a deep leg thrombosis caused a pulmonary embolism and in turn caused Heavy D’s death on November 8th 2011. In layman’s terms he died of a blood clot that traveled…

Harvest Moon

Due east of the mighty Mississippi River, a serene July night consumed the sullied goldenrod fields of Mt. Carroll, IL. as two lifeless teenage boys were pulled from a stainless steel Illinois grain bin. They were Wyatt Whitebread, 14 and Alejandro Pacas, 19.

According to OSHA reports, the two boys were “walking-down-the-corn”, creating flow for grain emptying machinery, when the kernels suddenly assumed the nature of quicksand below Wyatt’s feet. The 8th grader began…

Hello Jack,

Thanks for sharing the residential OSHA fall protection article. The National Roofing Contractor's Association has great concerns and comments concerning this ruling. I mostly agree with Tom Shananhan (NRCA risk manager) stating that "Most falls occur when no protection is being used." Unfortunately, regulations do not promote safety, they mandate safety. It is the company management that promotes safety.
