COMPETENT PERSON: FALL PROTECTION
16 HRS / TWO 8-HR DAYS
Focusing on current OSHA and ANSI requirements, this course will provide the knowledge and skills for establishing or improving a worksite's comprehensive fall protection program. Trained as Competent Persons for Fall Protection, participants will receive practical experience in recognizing fall hazards and developing appropriate measures for reducing or eliminating these hazards.
Detailed preplan forms will be used to guide participants through the process of evaluation and preparing for fall hazards in the workplace. This will include Roco's "Fall Hazard Survey," which identifies fall hazards and uses the "hierarchy of fall protection" to provide the most protective and feasible solutions.
Roco's "Suspended Worker Rescue Preplan" will be covered in a live field exercise as well as demonstrations and practice rescues utilizing pre-engineered rescue systems. Participants will be exposed to a variety of modern fall protection equipment and receive guidance in selecting the proper equipment for greatest safety and efficiency.
