Industrial Rescuers Share Challenge Experience

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Each scenario presented at Challenge focuses on a realistic confined space emergency that industrial rescue teams may face. Once the hazards, patient’s conditions and rescue requirements are outlined, the rescue team goes to work. When the rescue operation is complete, the Evaluator, normally a Roco Chief Instructor, debriefs team members, pointing out techniques, best practices, oversights and potential improvements that can be made. This is where the hands-on learning really pays off.

New Hierarchy of Fall Protection Safety Poster from Roco

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Roco’s new Hierarchy of Fall Protection Safety Poster provides guidance on how to protect your workers from fall hazards by illustrating a series of steps in making safer choices as job duties are approached. It clearly explains the need for employers to make every attempt to abate fall hazards at their work sites by starting with the most protective level of fall protection. OSHA and ANSI references are used to emphasize the need for proper training and “fallen or isolated worker-at-height” rescue pre-plans when appropriate.

This safety poster will provide a quick reminder that oftentimes working at height is more hazardous simply because more “protective steps” in the hierarchy were never considered.

By displaying this poster in strategic areas, we hope it will encourage all workers to take every opportunity to make work-at-height even safer. After all, for those of you who know Roco…there’s a safe way, and a SAFER way!
