Fall Protection Authorized Person

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Gravitec’s Fall Protection Authorized Person Course is best-suited for workers at height who are required to have a working knowledge of the safe use of fall protection systems and their components. The course curriculum is focused on fall protection theory and practical hands-on exercises. It covers the use of the most common, commercially available fall protection systems. (This course does not address the installation, design or erection of fall protection systems.) Depending on the length of the course, students also learn how to select an appropriate fall protection system and participate in exercises in which they must identify a fall hazard and use the fall protection equipment correctly. Written and practical tests are administered to ensure that the principles presented in the course are understood. Documentation is available to satisfy your company’s due diligence and regulatory requirements. This course meets the Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training (ANSI/ASSE Z490.1), the highest industry standard for training. Gravitec can supply all necessary fall protection equipment for this course.
