Fall Protection

24HR COMPETENT PERSON FALL PROTECTION

In this course, we will train you and your employees as an EM385 competent person to actively assess a situation to determine where the fall hazards may exist around the job site.  Because of our extensive experience, we work to use real life situations as examples to identify those hazards.  

This is a 3-day course, and we recommend that you bring your own personal harnesses (we do have our own large selection of different styles of harnesses available for use).  This certification lasts for two years.




AUTHORIZED RESCUER TRAINING

As a new addition to our fall protection program, this training is designed to educate your employees on how to properly care and rescue anyone in a fall situation.  They will learn how to properly secure someone to get them out of danger as well as learn how to immobilize in the instance that there was injury during the fall.

This is an eight-hour course, and it is recommended that the course is done in conjunction with the EM 385 competent person training (either full course or refresher) as to properly train those employees on fall prevention and protection from the start of the job to the end of it.  This certification is good for two years.
