In layman’s terms he died of a blood clot that traveled from his leg…See More

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 sinking. Pacas and a third…See More

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.
