According to research, construction workers sustain more traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) than workers at any other type of workplace. The study found that from 2003 to 2010, more than 2,200 construction workers died from TBIs with more than half resulting from a fall. As a result of these findings, coupled with personal experiences, a growing number of construction firms are revising existing personal protective equipment (PPE) policies to now require helmets on jobsites for all workers.

This webinar will cover the current OSHA requirements for head protection, the current consensus standards regulating the manufacturing and testing of industrial head protection, and the research that supports the movement to helmets as fall-related head protection. Two industry leaders engaged in this initiative – a general and specialty contractor – will discuss their journey, the influence the related research had on their internal policy decisions, and how they, and the industry, are moving forward.
