TAUC Alert

Fall protection webinar takes registration levels to new heights

TAUC contractors came out -- or, more accurately, online -- in droves on Aug. 13 to take part in the webinar, "Non-fatal attraction: Fall for your harness all over again," featuring Jack Moeding of Preferred Safety Products, on Aug. 13.

More than 150 union contractors and safety professionals joined the online training experience that shed new light on how to inspect, care for and store your personal fall arrest equipment.

TAUC Chief Executive Officer Stephen Lindauer said the high attendance is a sign of the tough economy.

"The Association of Union Constructors is pleased to lead the way in applying online training models to our industry," Lindauer said. "In these challenging times, our members rely on us to offer cost-effective ways to ensure union contractors remain the safest in the marketplace."

"Non-fatal attraction: Fall for your harness all over again" was generously sponsored by American Bridge Company, a TAUC governing member based out of Coraopolis, Penn.
