I have not heard that one, in fact, I had Miller Fall Protection come out to one of my sites; and the "expert" said that the use of a retractable instead of a shock absorbing lanyard allows ("according to OSHA") a less than 5,000 pound anchor, as it limits the fall so significantly that there is less force needing to be withstood.

I read a post today concerning self retracting lanyards as fall protection. The person that made the post said "be aware retractables are not for fall protection they are intended only for access and egress on ladders". If anyone knows anything about this statement or has any information on the specific standard, I would be very interested in the source of this statement. We utilize retractables as fall protection quite frequently ... Please HELP ... never heard this before.

Can anyone share some forms with me for evaluation? I am looking for a budget form for safety projects and an accident investigation form?

This is a great discussion and one that really interests me. For many years I have put various EHS systems in-place and at this point I have settled on this strategy; I use the structure that VPP provides, however not actually signing on with OSHA. Setting standards and auditing against those standards within a context "modeled" after VPP works for me. Brian

Hello everyone! The construction of my new flower shop will start next month, and it’s a big project for me. Since the shop’s location is near the main road, I want to make sure that everyone is safe during the work. I can’t afford any accident like people getting injured. So I’m thinking of purchasing construction health and safety signs from a supplier that my friend recommended.…See More
