"Federal OSHA and Cal/OSHA regulations can be very confusing but with the knowledge and fluency this class offered, it was easy to understand."
—Jean P. Chavez, Regan Roofing, Inc., Carlsbad, Calif.

"This was a very informative class worth attending to learn the issues other companies face with safety and learn how to better interpret OSHA regulations."
—Molly Hounsom, United Materials, Denver, Colo.

"I know a great deal pertaining to fall protection. I learned many new things today. Eight hours of my time is worth a lifetime of accident free work environments for our employees."
—Jason Plummer, Project Manager, Carlson Exteriors Inc., Bloomington, Ill.

"This course benefited me in my role as an inspector, helping to identify the proper safety and procedures that should be expected from a contractor."
—Jeremy Pozernick, City of Port Angeles, Port Angeles, Calif.

"This class was awesome. I thought I knew a lot about fall protection, but I was wrong. This class taught me a lot of information that I did not know."
—Rod Tijerina, Beldon Roofing, San Antonio

"One thing covered in this class was how important it is to read regulations at least twice as well as any specifications given from CA OSHA in order to be in compliance. The book can say two different things."
—Israel Ornelas, City of San Diego, San Diego, Calif.

"As a project manager, I visit job sites and see our crews wearing harnesses. I really appreciate the time the instructors dedicated to having our employees hang suspended in their own gear and see that many of them have not been adjusted correctly. It was very informative for our field employees."
—Mike Huston, Frost Roofing Inc., Wapakoneta, Ohio

"I was very pleased to attend this course. It filled a gap in my understanding of how to safely use fall protection harnesses. Safety is not guaranteed merely by using them."
Brad Caldwell, Owner, Roof, Rinse and Run, Auburn, Ala.

"This class was very helpful in refreshing my safety knowledge and keeping up with new and changing regulations."
—Kenneth Wright, Superintendent, Graham Roofing Inc., West Point, Miss.

"I felt the seminar was well organized and put together. It is extremely difficult to cover such a broad topic in a short amount of time and I feel that this was one of the best I have attended."
Leigh Hunsberger, Corporate Safety Director, CentiMark Corp., Canonsburg, Pa.

"The class provided very useful information we can take back to our work sites and relay to other employees and possibly prevent a death or severe injury. Thank you."
—Daniel J. Schinault, Shamrock Construction, Roscoe, Ill.

"Our company needs to become a safer place to work and this course will be the catalyst to getting us there. I look forward to our employees' reactions when they see the changes we will be implementing!"
—Frank Vanderlee, Legacy Roofing LLC, Glendale, Ariz.

"The class was very informative and included great one-on-one interaction with the instructors who answered any questions that we had. I recommend this seminar to any roofer."
—Chris Wallner, Safety Coordinator, Commercial Roofing, Plover, Wis.
