    Speaker Notes:

    In closing:
    • We believe that in most cases it IS FEASIBLE and WILL NOT CREATE A GREATER HAZARD to implement conventional fall protection systems for residential construction work.
    • There have been considerable advances in the types and capability of commercially available fall protection equipment.
    • We cannot let workers get killed when effective means are readily available to prevent those deaths.
    • The new directive will help us get there.
    • Companies that had been operating in accordance with the old directive have until June 16, 2011 to come into compliance with 1926.501(b)(13) as written.
    • All workers have a right to return safely home to their families every day.
