What you Really Need for an OSHA-Compliant Fall Protection Anchorage (Intermediate)  Craig Galecka, P.E. , CSP, Principal, LJB, Inc.

Every year, facility owners spend millions of dollars and countless hours on designing, installing, inspecting and testing anchorages related to work at heights.  Many times, the time and money spent does nothing more than give the owner a false sense of security, not realizing that critical factors such as overall system use, building strength, and fall clearances have not been property addressed.

OSHA’s walking and working surface regulation, effective in January of 2017, put renewed focus on the importance of anchorages for fall protections, as well as for the support of window cleaning and facade maintenance equipment.

This session clarifies OSHA’s requirements for the design, installation, inspection, and testing of fall protection anchorages, and provides guidance on best practices that will ensure an anchorage performs as expected when called upon to save a life.

Breaking Down Cultural Barriers at La-Z-Boy – A Case Study of Early Ergonomic Involvement in a New Product Launch (Intermediate)  Tim McCurry, Director of Health & Safety, and Dennis Poland, Safety Manager, La-Z-Boy.

La-Z-Boy is a major manufacturer of high quality furniture, with plants located throughout the United States.  The processes employed in producing these products place extreme ergonomic demands on the workers.  High rates of production, prolific use of hand tools, heavy end items, and work practices place demands on employees that result in high rates of employee turnover, absenteeism and work related MSDs.
