SBCA Executive Director, Kirk Grundahl will give an update on SBCA’s Fall Protection program as it relates to the most current OSHA guidelines. OSHA’s removal of interim guidelines for fall protection is having a significant impact on residential construction jobsites. Its permitting of a fall restraint system creates a serious concern, given that most framers will use the peak point of roof trusses as their anchor point. This session will focus on several key issues:

  • Concerns regarding conventional fall protection (e.g., tying off to trusses, peak anchors, lateral loading, bracing and sheathing)
  • SBCA’s ongoing work with OSHA’s Directorate of Construction
  • Revisions to the BCSI B11 Summary Sheet
  • Step-by-step approach
  • Resolving workability issues
  • Getting OSHA’s approval
