For immediate release
October 11, 2007

WETHERSFIELD, Being aware of one’s surroundings and taking proper safety precautions on the job is a must for every worker in this state.  This is especially true for a construction worker who must scale heights and climb scaffolds as part of his or her daily routine. Knowing how to maintain proper balance and adequately protect oneself in a position that most people would consider precarious can literally mean the difference between life and death.

Employees in the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA), will, on Oct. 15, take a close-up look at the subject during “Fall Protection and Scaffolding Safety Training “ a three-hour class that offers instruction and advice on ways that construction workers can best ensure their safety.  

The class will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the agency’s Central Office, 200 Folly Brook Boulevard in Wethersfield. in Conference Room A. 

Anthony Fuschillo, a Compliance Assistance Specialist with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Hartford office, who has more than 30 years experience in the construction industry, will teach the session. 

“The session will cover the OSHA requirements for fall protection and scaffolding, with a primary focus on residential construction sites,” explains Kenneth Tucker, CONN-OSHA Program Manager.  “Adequate time for questions will be allotted.” 

Admission is free, but pre-registration is required.  To register for the session, or for additional information, please contact Ken Tucker at (860) 263-6929, or via email at
