Webinar Description:
This presentation will outline recent updates to the recent OSHA Fall Protection Regulation as well as developments within the ANSI Z359 family of Fall Protection standards as relates to rope access. Presented by PMI’s Loui McCurley, who has been blazing new trails in safe work at height for over three decades, this is a command performance update to her presentation at the January 2017 SPRAT conference. From working as a Rope Access Technician before such a thing existed in the USA, Loui visualized and instigated the founding of the Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT) in 1996, then went on to help develop a pair of groundbreaking global rope access standards with the International Standards Organization (ISO) in 2003. Ten years later, she worked tirelessly with OSHA to ensure allowances were made for rope access in the impending 2016 updates to their 29CFR 1910 Subpart D Walking Working Surfaces regulation, and recently released the first book of it’s kind on Professional Rope Access for Safety Professionals and Program Managers. Today, in addition to serving as Regulatory Assistance Chairman of SPRAT, Loui is once again leading a charge for the cause as chairman of the ANSI Z359 Committee’s forthcoming standard on Rope Access. Loui’s commitment and passion to improving safety in work at height is recognized by regulatory authorities, standards organizations, and corporate safety professionals worldwide. You’ll get the latest critical updates and insights toward future efforts in this presentation.
