John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
As a qualified person, a structural engineer may be asked to design a new fall protection system or to evaluate the structural adequacy of an existing fall protection system/component based on the OSHA design guidelines. In this lesson, you are required to study Fall Protection in Construction (OSHA 3146 – a design standard) published by Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This technical document covers the important design aspects of fall protection systems and the required strength of each component. You will also be introduced to the proprietary fall protection devices available on the market.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. This course qualifies for Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credits.
