Harness Hero - A Safety Training App that Can Save Lives

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry. In 2014, over 300 construction workers died as a result of a fall at work. These deaths are preventable with the proper use of fall prevention and fall protection. Congratulations to the AGC’s Western Pennsylvania Building Chapter, the Master Builders Association (MBA), for taking fall protection training to the modern day and using an app to train anyone with a smartphone or tablet.  Titled Harness Hero, it’s not just a game but an innovative approach to saving lives in the construction industry. This gaming app will enhance the way AGC members deliver fall protection training and it will be available for download through the Google Play Store, Amazon Under Ground, and Apple iTunes by this year’s OSHA National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction Week, May 2-6, 2016.  For more information on how to become a Harness Hero, visit Harness Hero or contact the MBA Safety Director Bob McCall at 412-922-3912 or bob.mccall@mbawpa.org.
