Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards (MA DLS), On-site Consultation Program is offering free OSHA fall protection training to small business employers. Falls are one of the most common causes of workplace injuries and deaths. This OSHA-sponsored training is a great opportunity to learn about safety in the workplace and what is needed to meet OSHA requirements for preventing falls at residential construction worksites. MA DLS is offering four sessions starting December 2016 through September 2017. Attendees can go to any session, and they must complete an entire session in order to receive an OSHA certificate. For registration and more information, visit www.mass.gov/dols and click on the link under News & Updates, Fall Protection in Residential Construction Seminar.

Employers should take every opportunity to prevent workers from being injured from falls. OSHA's Fall Protection in Residential Construction webpage provides additional resources to help implement effective fall protection measures on construction worksites.

OSHA's On-site Consultation Program offers free and confidential safety and occupational health advice to small and medium-sized businesses in all states across the country, with priority given to high-hazard worksites. On-site Consultation services are separate from enforcement and do not result in penalties or citations. Consultants from the state's agency works with employers to identify workplace hazards, provide advice on compliance with OSHA standards, and assist in establishing injury and illness prevention programs.

Additional information about the OSHA On-site Consultation Program is available at www.osha.gov or (800) 321-6742 (OSHA).
