Facade Access Equipment
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that building owners certify to users of facade access equipment (such as window washers) that the equipment meets all applicable OSHA requirements, one component of which is meeting minimum structural requirements to be able to safely support workers and work platforms/scaffolds.
This WJE webinar is focused on providing you with additional insight into OSHA requirements and how you can ensure that workers on your buildings have structurally adequate supports. WJE facade access experts Richard Dethlefs, Gwenyth Searer, and host Jon Lewis will explain OSHA's requirements in lay terms, discuss some common options available to verify structural compliance, and answer your questions about all things related to facade access. During the webinar, you will learn: more about the details of OSHA requirements; what you need to do if your equipment was never tested or for which no documentation can be found; some guidelines on what constitutes adequate or inadequate load testing; and how the governing regulations are changing.
