Course Description

Fall arrest is the form of fall protection which involves the safe stopping of a person already falling. It is one of several forms of fall protection, forms which also include fall guarding (general protection that prevents persons from entering a fall hazard area e.g., guard rails) and fall restraint (personal protection which prevents persons who are in a fall hazard area from falling, e.g., fall restraint lanyards).

Workers are required to have trained in the use of fall protection equipment as legislated by the OH&S Code of Alberta. Fall protection incidents continually rise along with fatalities in a variety of industries.

This 4 hour fall protection training course in Calgary is designed to educate the worker in the planning, use, care and implementation of common Fall Protection systems. It includes both theory and practical application exercises.
