The course covers legislation, safety measures and best practices. It includes the selection and safe use of fall prevention, work positioning and fall arrest systems. It additionally includes fall hazard identification, fall protection planning and discussion on fall effects and fall rescue. Participants will engage in hands-on training. Participants must pass both a written and a practical-skills exam to obtain a certificate of successful course completion. As part of the practical exam, each participant will be briefly suspended in a harness. Participants should be physically capable of safely executing this procedure. This course can be adapted to provide more practical training with the use of our Fall Protection simulators. This course is one of the Safety Training courses offered at Great Plains College.
