Fall Protection Trainer

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Gravitec’s Fall Protection Trainer Course provides students with the technical knowledge and resource materials to deliver professional, in-house fall protection training. 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.

It should be noted that our Train-the-Trainer course is only one component of a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program, outlined in ANSI/ASSE Z359.2. In accordance with this standard, we believe that every job site should have a Program Administrator, a Competent Person and Authorized Users.

This course meets the Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training (ANSI/ASSE Z490.1), the highest industry standard for training. It also meets the requirements of ANSI/ASSE Z359.2, Minimum Requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program, found in the ANSI/ASSE Z359 Fall Protection Code.

Students are encouraged to bring their own equipment for this course if possible. Gravitec can supply all necessary fall protection equipment for this course.
