“ANSI and OSHA standards must always be adhered to on the job site, but there are noteworthy similarities and differences between these two organisations,” said Hoover. The workshop will also cover how the new ANSI standards will impact machine design, safe use and training.

Marzicola will present, “Trends in Low-level Access and Proper Training” Friday, 31 August, at 8.30 am His workshop will demonstrate how low-level access (LLA) lifts help companies address worksite safety concerns as well as review the current conditions and industry trends in this category, and what the future may hold.

“With safety being of utmost concern, companies are continuing to turn their attention to low-level access lifts as a safer alternative to ladders,” said Marzicola. “This workshop covers what machines comprise the low-level access category and how proper training can help reduce risk on the job site.”

The National VPPPA Symposium brings together safety and health experts from more than 400 different industries who are united in their mission to create safer environments for their peers and colleagues.
