This course is designed for the Authorized User who climbs fixed ladders. The new “Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Fall Protection Systems Final Rule” / OSHA Regulations, released in November 2016, will introduce fall arrest systems and harness use to many people who have not had to use this type of equipment.
Students will gain a thorough understanding of how to recognize fall hazards and take corrective action according to the governing body (EM 385-1-1, OPNAVINST 5100.23 Chapter 13, DON Fall Protection Guide, UFGS 01 35 25 and OSHA 1926.500-503, 1910.66 Appendix C).
Similar to Gravitec’s Managed Fall Protection Program Administrator Course, this program provides managers and safety professionals with the tools, guidelines and materials to develop a state-of-the-art Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program outlined in ANSI/ASSE Z359.2-2007.
