Activities and Products
This report covers from November 29, 2007 to March 18, 2009
Several meetings were held with a goal of developing a request for a letter of interpretation on the use of roof cutters outside warning lines. Statistics were analyzed and a request for a letter of interpretation was drafted. The letter has not yet been sent to the National Office.
Training was conducted during the CRCA annual trade show by Frank Marino and Josh Moore. Over 150 employees were in attendance. Training covered OSHA inspections and frequently cited OSHA violations, and included a 'Q&A' session.
A study was conducted on the use of roof cutters and operations were video-taped. These materials will accompany the request for an interpretation on the use of the equipment outside warning lines. The letter was developed and is still being reviewed. It is anticipated that it will be sent this year.
