Falls from heights are the number one cause of injuries in the construction sector. The proper use of fall protection equipment, in addition to planning, supervision, and training, can reduce or eliminate the risk of falling. Anyone who routinely works at elevations is susceptible to sustaining serious injuries, even death, as a result of inadequate or missing fall protection. Workers on an unguarded platform more than 3 m (10 ft.) from the ground are required to use fall protection under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations in BC.
WorkSafeBC Occupational Health and Safety Regulations require workers to use a fall protection system where they could fall at least 3 m (10 ft.) or where a fall from a lesser height may result in serious injury. In addition workers must be trained thoroughly in the safe use and limitations of personal fall protection equipment. This half day 4 hour fall protection training course engages and instructs workers, who use fall arrest and fall restraint equipment and systems, on the proper methods to ensure their safety.
Topics covered will be legislation, introduction, fall protection hierarchy, guardrail systems, control zone systems, fall restraint systems, fall arrest systems, inspections of equipment, anchor criteria, full body harness and fitting, lanyards, shock absorber, connectors, carabiners, donning practice and partner check.
Pricing is dependent on a number of factors such as training location, travel expenses and the number of trainees.
