Fall Protection training is designed to familiarize workers with the dangers of fall hazards, as well as the proper adornment, use, care, and maintenance of fall protection equipment. With falls being the leading cause of death in construction, it makes sense OSHA requires training for anyone using personal fall protection equipment.

    • Fall Restraint Systems (Railing requirements)
    • Safety Monitors & Warning Lines
    • Fall Protection Plans (Competent Person Supervision)
    • Personal Fall Arrest Systems
