Fall Protection Education

The goal of fall protection planning should be to minimize the risk of falling.  With careful design, fall hazards during daily work tasks and scheduled maintenance can be all but eliminated.  When hazards are inherent in facility design, innovative procedural changes that do not involve complicated personal protective equipment should be considered.  Where personal protective equipment is the only viable solution, strategies to minimize or eliminate free falls protects the worker from serious injury and simplifies rescue.  The people making these decisions must have a comprehensive understanding of the process that can only be provided by high quality training programs.

Eight hour "fall arrest" awareness classes are offered by almost every safety provider and taught internally by many companies.  Legislation in some jurisdictions not only requires mandatory training but dictates what has to be included in the syllabus.  The training offered by The Response Group is tailored to the legislation in the jurisdiction where it is offered.

A common misconception is that the fall protection user requires more training than supervisors and safety personnel.  Without knowledgable supervisors, it's hard to feel comfortable monitoring workers and ensuring that they are safe and compliant.  This course covers basic fall protection principles but also goes deeper into legislative details, writing fall protection plans, annual equipment inspection, equipment standards and can focus on any specialized equipment that is utilized by the company.
