Fall Protection & Rescue Training
An effective fall protection program involves ensuring your staff are adequately trained to identify and control fall hazards in the workplace. Gravitec offers year-round fall protection training at our facility near Seattle, WA, and select locations across the U.S.
Whether you’re an end user or a professional engineer, you’ll walk away from our courses with the know-how to effectively deal with fall hazards in your workplace. Curriculum is designed to prepare workers and empower them to use available equipment and implement systems to protect themselves.
Why Choose Gravitec?
“Gravitec Systems believes that fall protection and rescue includes topics and skills that must be learned by doing. Training that excludes physical exercises and observation of performance (hands-on), does not provide students with the experience they deserve and in some situations exposes the employer to legal issues of inadequate training.”
– Kevin Denis, Director of Special Projects
Which Course Should I Take at Gravitec?
Each of our courses combines interactive classroom sessions and applied learning in our world-class indoor training facility in Poulsbo, Washington, or at a location of your choice. To address site-specific variables, custom courses can be tailored for different systems and applications.
Gravitec does not endorse specific products or manufacturer product lines. Students are exposed to and have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of fall protection equipment during training. This allows them to identify the best piece of equipment for their particular task and enables them to form their own opinion of each product.
