Falling from heights continues to be one of the biggest killers in industrial workplaces. Workers need to receive fall protection training to be able to use proper fall protection equipment. An important aspect of this is the maintenance and inspections needed for fall personal protective equipment to ensure that workers who use this equipment are well protected from falling.

Workers who conduct the formal inspections on fall protection equipment should, and must, know the proper and effective processes of inspecting and documenting personal protection equipment for fall arrest and fall restraint systems. It is extremely important that inspectors be effectively trained for Fall Protection Training before conducting any inspection of equipment.

TEAM-1 offers a fall protection certification course to help companies and individuals work safely at heights. This fall restraint and fall arrest training is offered as an open enrollment course at our classroom training facility, or on-site training is available. Because of the practical application exercises and hands-on knowledge required, this is not offered as an online fall protection training course.

Course Content

The fall protection training course, which typically spans over 4 hours, covers the following topics:

  • Fall Arrest Systems: Comprehensive understanding of fall arrest systems, including equipment, components, and their proper use.
  • Fall Restraint Systems: Knowledge of fall restraint systems and their application in preventing falls.

Please note that an online course option is not available for this training as it requires hands-on demonstrations of practical skills.
