Fall Protection Training Program: What to Expect

Used to describe the secure stopping of an individual falling from an elevated workspace, fall arrest provides numerous forms of protection against falls. Some of these include fall restraint (which prevents falls when workers are in a fall hazard zone) and fall guarding (well-established protection that prevents people from coming into a fall hazard zone).

In order to work in such environments, it is a requirement for workers to be trained in fall protection equipment as decreed by the OH&S Code of Alberta. This fall protection training course in Calgary is a 4-hour program that is designed to educate and inform the everyday blue-collar worker in the planning, usage, and application of Fall Protection systems.

What you’ll learn:

  • Best practices for safety regulations
  • How to properly examine and inspect your harness, lanyard, and other fall protection equipment
  • Proper equipment selection, examination, and upkeep
  • The difference between fall restraint vs. fall arrest
  • The importance of Anchor Points and Anchor Systems
  • The necessity of a Pro-Active Safety mindset and attitude
  • How to safely use the equipment and systems
