WBOY News reports on WVU’s contributions to the Campaign to Prevent Falls in Construction. From the article:

“When you look at falls from height and construction, first thing you need to do is pre-plan and look at where there will be exposures to falls from height, and then you have to decide what’s the best solution,” said Mark Fullen, the program leader of the OSHA Training and Education Center at WVU. “That could be putting on a harness and a lanyard, or you could put up a guardrail that prevents you from falling over the edge, or you can put up a scaffold like we have here.”
