September Members Lunch

  • September 20, 2018
  • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
  • The Estate by Gene & Georgetti, 9421 W. Higgins, Rosemont, 60018

Safety is the most important factor when any suspended maintenance work is being performed on your building. The window cleaning anchor points must be engineered, tested, and certified to be able to withstand a 5,000 lb. load. Would your current anchors and davits pass OSHA certification? 

OSHA issued a final ruling on Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Protection Systems to better protect workers in general industry to prevent fall hazards. At this time, anchors either need to be up to code or you need to be utilizing other means for window washing and building maintenance. 

Whether you are a property professional in need of bringing your anchors into compliance with the new OSHA rules, or you are a vendor who requires rooftop access for your business, you don't want to miss the September Members Lunch on OSHA Fall Protection to hear Ziad Salameh PhD, PE, Principal-In-Charge and Andy Martin, Principal-Senior Building Scientist at ZS LLC (ZS) present a summary of the current OSHA Walking-Working Surfaces regulations with a specific focus on building owner responsibilities and best safety practices for Building Maintenance/Window Cleaning Access. 

Their presentation will cover: 

  • An overview of the new OSHA regulations
  • Building maintenance access systems
  • Identifications of fall hazards
  • Building owner responsibilities
  • A general action plan to bring a typical building into compliance
