Gravitec’s Industrial Rescue Course introduces participants to industrial rescue methods and emphasizes a planned approach to rescue where the acceptable rescue methods are determined in advance. Safety of the rescue team is considered before the rescue begins and stressed throughout the program. Classroom sessions are part of the curriculum but they are not the focus of this course. A large portion of this course is allocated to exercises where each student participates and practices with rescue methods. 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.
Students are encouraged to bring their own equipment for this course if possible. Gravitec can supply all necessary fall protection equipment for this course.
