IMG_5020Description:  Fall Protection Safety – Competent Person – Systems & Equipment

“Competent Person” (what is this?)

The course includes hands on demonstrations. This class is perfect for construction workers and industrial applications. We cover Fed & Cal OSHAʼs Fall Protection Regulations 1926.500 & 1670 and how the standard applies to both Construction and General Industry.

We will also address Military Spec EM-385 and ANSI Z359 ‘Managed Fall Protection Standard’

We’ll demonstrate how to set-up an anchor point and lifelines on a roof. Harness inspection, adjustment, of safety harness, lanyards, Self Retracting Lifelines, Fall Restraint/ positioning systems and rescue procedures will be covered.

The class is 6 to 8 hours depending on the size of the class. Upon course completion, students will receive a wallet card and certificate.

** Our 1 day class was developed for experienced field personnel who use fall protection systems frequently.   The 2 day class gives students an additional day of hands-on experience and our 3 day class is for students who want to learn as much as possible about fall protection equipment and fully understand the Fed & Cal OSHA regulations.

Students who pass the exam and demonstrate sufficient skills and knowledge are given a certificate for Qualified Trainer.  This license good for 5 years.

Read what people are saying about our Fall Protection Training methods!

This was a great class. I especially appreciate your knowledge. The one typical complaint with these types of trainings is that there typically is a lot of room to condense the course down; that is, the time is not spent teaching thoroughly and deeply and efficiently. This is not the case when you are teaching however. I really appreciate this, as any amount of time away from my jobs is very valuable to me.
Thank again and I look forward to the next one.
– David Dachauer – Herrero Builders

This really helped me.  I understand this subject in a way I never did before.        Thanks Steve for a great course.  Joe Mullen – Westco Iron Safety Director
