Women in construction industry to get custom-fitting safety harnesses
from Facility Executive
Falls are the leading cause of private sector worker fatalities in the construction industry, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). As such, everyone who works at heights — whether it’s on a roof, scaffolding, or the edge of a tall building — needs properly fitting safety harnesses, yet not all contractors have the supply they need to better protect women in construction. To help address this, Autodesk is funding a grant program with the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) to supply select, in-need member contractors with fall protection harnesses sized for women who work at heights.
