FALL PROTECTION TRAINING (4 HOURS)
Fall Protection Training in Vancouver BC. Falls from heights, even relatively low elevations, can result in serious injuries. 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. For workers on an unguarded platform more than 3 m (10 ft.) from the ground to those constructing high-rise buildings, proper fall protection is an important issue and mandatory under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations in BC.
The Regulation is clear: fall protection must be used whenever a worker is at risk of falling 3 m or more. In addition, before workers begin a job, they must be thoroughly trained in the proper use of the fall protection system they will be using. WorkSafeBC Occupational Health and Safety Regulation requires workers in BC 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.
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 safety. Topics covered will be OHSR 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.
Successful completion of a practical evaluation and written theory exam is required for completion of this program.
