OSHA and Faith Technologies Partner for Event to Recognize and Prevent Fall Hazards
Lenexa, Kan. (May 28, 2014) – Faith Technologies, an electrical and specialty systems contractor announced today that the organization will participate in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) National Safety Stand-Down week, June 2-6, designed to raise awareness among employers and employees about the fall hazards. The company, in partnership with OSHA, will host a stand down event on June 3 at Faith Technologies’ wireless training facility, located at 11086 Strang Line Rd. in Lenexa, Kan. from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
During Faith Technologies’ two-hour stand-down event, employees will pause their workday to discuss the importance that fall protection plays in ensuring the safety of employees working at elevated heights. The organization’s safety and wireless group leaders will review the key elements of its custom three week wireless training program, Operational Risk Management (ORM) process and fall protection program. The processes are essential to successfully perform any aspect of work “at height” in the wireless industry.
“We are excited for the opportunity to join efforts with OSHA for National Safety Stand Down week,” said David Jahner, Executive Vice President of Faith Technologies. “By sharing our specific best practices for telecommunications workers, we are hoping to enhance industry training, strengthen commitment to safety and ultimately prevent falls for all those who work at elevated heights. With proper education and training, planning, and proper equipment, we believe all falls can be prevented.”
The stand-down event is part of OSHA’s ongoing Fall Prevention Campaign developed in partnership with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and its National Occupational Research Agenda program to provide employers with information on how to plan ahead to prevent falls, provide the right equipment for their workers and train all employees in the proper use of equipment.
