The Architectural Sheet Metal Forum, which takes place at SMACNA’s Annual Convention in Palm Desert, Calif. on Oct. 12, will feature two presentations not to be missed. The International Training Institute’s (ITI) new soldering certification program (presently under development) and an innovative fall protection systems that improve both worker safety and productivity are on the agenda.
Mike Harris, ITI’s program administrator, will present the new soldering certification program based on the recently released AWS B2.3 “Specification for Soldering Procedure and Performance Qualification.” A panel of SMACNA architectural contractors will discuss how to promote the benefits of soldering certification to architects and customers.
A consultant from the fall protection systems industry will review technological innovations in fall protection systems – a constant safety concern for every architectural sheet metal contractor.
