This 1/2 day course provides participants with a general understanding of what fall protection is and the types of equipment and techniques required. Participants perform an equipment inspection, evaluate hazards, and experience suspension in a fall protection simulation exercise.
The Fall Protection course includes lessons, quizzes, a final exam, and a certificate of completion.
Fall Protection (full-day course: Energy Safety Canada)
Energy Safety Canada’s full-day fall protection course is designed for workers who need basic fall protection training to work in areas with potential fall hazards. This course replaces the former OSSA-approved Fall Protection training courses.
Note: While this basic course can be used as part of a worker’s competency assessment, the employer must designate a worker as a “competent person” based on the specific tasks assigned.
The course covers the following topics:
- Fall protection concepts
- Legislation and regulations
- Safety measures and best practices
- Identifying and assessing fall hazards
- Fall arrest systems and equipment
- Protection planning
- Effects of a fall and fall rescue planning
Participants will engage in hands-on training activities, including inspecting, fitting, adjusting and connecting fall protection systems and components.
Upon course completion, students will have the ability to assess and evaluate fall arrest systems, and to develop and implement fall protection plans. Workers will be issued a certification card at the end of the course valid for 3 years.
