Basic Fall Rescue Training
Thursday, May 9 & 10, 2019 / 7:30 am – 4:00 pm
Falls are consistently the #1 cause of death and serious injuries in the construction industry! Focus on both regulatory (OSHA) requirements and best industry practices to protect employees from the dangers of working at heights. In the event that a worker falls, and the appropriate fall protection systems are used, the employer must still perform a rescue. OSHA requires prompt rescue within 15 minutes. Is your company ready for this? Course will include lecture, hands-on activities, and tabletop-style exercises using potential workplace scenarios focusing on both regulatory (OSHA) requirements and best industry practices. In addition, the course will include the proper techniques that can be deployed in order to safely rescue a fallen worker.
