Fall protection meeting a "cinch"
Western’s Fall Protection Committee held a meeting Dec. 11, 2013 to review equipment and plan a train-the-trainer event scheduled for the week of March 3. Fall Protection Coordinators from each region attended, along with the committee chair, committee advisor and four representatives from Southwestern Power Administration. As part of the meeting, a specialist from Capital Safety presented newer equipment, discussed equipment development and helped attendees get familiar with the Cynch-Lok device.
