With more than 17,000 miles of transmission lines, WAPA is one of the top 10 largest transmission providers in the nation. The number one concern at WAPA, as it is across the industry, is the safety of all employees.
WAPA has been actively involved in developing Fall Protection training for more than 20 years. The video series is the Fall Protection Committee’s most recent contribution to the evolving program. Fall Protection Training: Steel Structures focuses on fall protection as it relates to work on and around steel towers, including methods to use and equipment for moving around the towers.
Fall Protection is a critical component of WAPA’s day-to-day mission to keep electricity flowing. Taking a leadership role in the necessary training and education is one way Western can ensure the health and welfare of all of its hard working men and women.
