This two-day training course was developed in conjunction with the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC). The course is intended for workers and other personnel involved in drilling and service rig operations. Topics include fall protection principles, anchorages, body support devices, connecting components and devices, life lines and ladder-climbing techniques. The hands-on portion of the training includes climbing to a height using fall protection equipment, work positioning anchorage connection and transfer between fall protection systems. Successful completion of the course requires that participants be in good physical condition and be able to climb to a height of approximately four metres.
NOTE: Participants are required to bring their own PPE including a hard hat (with chin strap), steel-toed boots, fire resistant coveralls, work gloves, protective eyewear and hearing protection.
