FALL ARREST TRAINING / WORKING AT HEIGHT

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Falls from height are the leading cause of accidental death and injury in Ontario. Each day, 80 people are injured from falls at work. According to the WSIB, on average, each injury results in 4 weeks of lost time. The Safe-Tech Fall Protection Training Program is intended for any worker who may at times be required to work at heights where fall protection is required. This program provides workers with the required knowledge to prevent fall related accidents. Participants will be instructed how to select the proper fall protection components for their application and how to correctly use, inspect and maintain their fall protection equipment.

CLASSROOM TRAINING CONTENT

  • Current applicable legislation and guidelines
  • Identification of fall hazards
  • Equipment selection
  • Understanding anchorage points
  • Fall protection systems and components
  • Basic energy dissipation principles
  • Calculating fall clearances
  • Rescue plan importance
  • Standards and regulations
  • Body support selection and application
  • Component inspection and maintenance

PRACTICAL COMPONENT

Most fall arrest equipment users have never in fact been suspended in a body harness and consequently harnesses are often worn incorrectly. To emphasize the critical need for proper harness fit and adjustment, each participant will be correctly fitted with an individual harness and suspended from our tripod rescue system. Demonstrations on incorrect equipment usage will also take place during this segment. (Participants should be advised that skirts and dresses are not appropriate for this exercise).
