Even when contractors and workers take steps to prevent them, falls can still occur. So what happens after a worker falls and is saved by their personal fall arrest system? Hanging in a harness too long can lead to orthostatic intolerance and suspension trauma, and there isn’t always time to wait for emergency services to respond. It’s critical that employers train and provide for fall rescue. Learn more from our experts about suspension trauma, rescue plans, solutions for self- and assisted-rescue, and the importance of training. This webinar will last between 1 and 1.5 hours including Q&A.
