Who should take this class:
Workers involved with construction, heavy industry, emergency response or safety management that deal with work performed at heights above 10 ft.
(Roofers, Framers, Scaffold workers, Iron Workers, Construction Safety Officers, Site Medics)
Injuries sustained from Falling are common when working in industrial environments. This Basic/Advanced Fall Protection class is designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and abilities to recognize and mitigate Hazards related to working at heights.
In this Industry, Safety Training Course students will be able to understand the hierarchy of Fall Protection and will be shown through the use of scenarios how to come up with a Fall Protection Plan. Our course references Part 11 of the Occupational Health and Safety Code to educate students on what obligations they have for compliance as Workers, Supervisors, or Safety Officers. This includes when to use Fall Protection Plans, where to find the resources to make one, and which methods of Fall Protection are preferred in specific situations.
Using the principles of “Hierarchy of Control”, students will learn the level of safety associated with Engineered Fall Protection, Fall Restraint, Fall Arrest, Controls Zones, and Safety Monitors. These are critical in selecting when and how to establish these Fall Protection systems appropriately. Additionally, the course will introduce the dangers of suspension trauma, define and illustrate swing fall hazards, and review the importance of safe use storage and documentation of equipment, regular safety inspections on equipment, and how to properly don and doff safety harnesses.
Students will learn the minimum safety strength ratings of Fall Protection equipment such as anchors and anchorages, guardrails, carabiners and snap hooks, lanyards and shock absorbers, rope grabs, and safety lifelines.
