Changing Work Site Culture to Be More Vocal About Safety
Fall protection and safety are critical aspects of any job that requires heights. The most critical component is the harness. However, it’s not just the product and design that matter. Communicating real-world safety scenarios and getting everyone to talk about them is essential, as well. Safety Justice League welcomed Alex Hogan, Strategic Sales Manager at Malta Dynamics, a leading fall protection and safety products manufacturer.
Hogan had not planned on a career in safety, but the CEO of Malta Dynamics was a long-time mentor. “I had a job lined up after graduating, and then he started talking about this company. Four years later, here I am.”
Hogan is adamant about his role as a safety advocate. “I try to bring a deeper meaning into what safety on the worksite should include. I want people not to be tight-lipped about safety. We should all be talking about it.”
In the fall protection realm, the company’s XSeries harnesses are truly innovative. Hogan said, “The start of this harness design was hearing from those performing jobs saying they didn’t like the fall protection products that had and needed something better.”
Hogan described the latest XSeries product. “The overhead anchorage ability with the mobile design is versatile. Our CEO played a big role in the design, and I trust it.”
Hogan also discussed how they train and introduce workers to products, which is different from traditional fall protection trailers. “We talk to people about real-world applications and what they’ll be doing in the real world when wearing these. Trailers are good, but you can’t grasp what you’d do in the situation.”
