Eye and face safety, fall protection the focus of NSC Expo in Orlando
On October 23, 2012, the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) will hold its second annual "PPE Solutions from ISEA Experts" forum at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The forum will focus on eye, face, fall, and respiratory safety.
The event will begin with a presentation on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) "Top 10" safety and health citations, which will be immediately followed by discussions on industry standards, applications, regulations, and performance focusing on safety products. Representatives from ISEA will also be on hand to answer questions.
A segment on fall protection will review ANSI/ASSE Z359.14-2012 to provide a clear picture of the new standard for self-retracting devices. Eye and face protection seminars will detail the need to include prescription safety glasses in a company's eye and face protection requirements and planning. An additional discussion will be held on the elements needed for a thorough respiratory protection program.
ISEA and the National Safety Council (NSC) created the Solutions from ISEA Experts program to provide practical training on the trade show floor. The NSC will continue the program as a regular part of the event with the OSHA top 10 presentation.
