Please note: Participants must be fully vaccinated to take this course.
The facility manager will be on-site to check that participants are fully vaccinated (2 shots). Digital or paper copy government-issued with the QR code is the accepted proof. The little blue card we get when we get the vaccination is unacceptable.
Overview: This course is designed for any worker performing duties where a fall hazard exists. Telecom specialists, tradespeople, construction workers, theatre rigging technicians, and bridge maintenance staff are just a few professionals who will benefit from this course.
For some workers, exposure to fall hazards occurs daily. For others working at height is something that takes place periodically. Whether a worker faces fall hazards every day or once a year, attendance in a course like this is critical.
Comprehensive knowledge of fall safety systems and their components is required, as workers are responsible for sound decision-making in each unique at-height situation. This course will address the hazards associated with working at heights and the fall safety systems commonly used to reduce the risks.
