Falls from height continue to pose serious risks to the health and safety of workers worldwide. As the international voice and forum for fall protection information exchange, the International Society for Fall Protection (ISFP) invites you to participate in the ISFP Symposium on June 27-28, immediately following the American Society of Safety Engineer’s Safety 2013 Professional Development Conference and Exposition.
The ISFP Symposium brings together world-renowned experts in the field of fall protection and provides a platform for attendees to discuss and learn about the most current tools and methods for controlling and eliminating fall hazards. Attendees will learn about the latest advances in the field of fall protection, as well as guidance for safe work at height.
This year, the event’s theme is Don’t Play the Odds and will challenge the complacency that is often related to fall hazard risk. The consequences of a fall from height are too significant for anyone-manufacturers, employers or users—to be numb to fall hazard risk. Throughout the symposium, expert presentations and panel discussions will cover a full range of global fall protection topics, including horizontal lifelines, models for fall arrest testing, and industrial rope access techniques.
