Many lost-time injuries can be attributed to falls in the workplace. Employers have a duty to ensure that workers are protected from all potential fall hazards.
It is imperative that workers understand the hazards of working at heights and the application and limitations of the fall protection systems designed to protect them from falling.
Our course is designed to provide users of fall protection systems with adequate knowledge to be able to assess the job, evaluate the hazards, and choose the correct fall protection system when working at heights.
The course includes theory and a hands-on demonstration of proper harness and lanyard inspection and donning and doffing. The course content is based on multiple CSA Standards pertaining to fall protection.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
