Introduction only - not the full day legislation requirement

60 Minutes 

 

Nearly 20% of all lost time injuries can be attributed to falls in the workplace. The majority of falls occur on the same level, while others involve falls to a lower level. The latter usually resulting in more serious injuries or death. Falls are preventable.

 

Our Fall Protection Program will provide participants with an understanding of their responsibilities when working in areas where fall hazards exist, the use of and inspection of the required equipment and the critical controls necessary to reduce the risk of a fall. Upon successful completion, a certificate will be issued automatically.

 

Modules: Fall Protection and Fall Arrest Systems, General Responsibilities, Fall Arrest Systems, Fall Hazards and Controls, Inspection of Equipment and Donning a Harness.

 

What is Fall Arrest?

 

Fall Arrest includes travel restraints such as a harness, a lanyard and an anchorage point. In some instances it can include a safety net underneath the worker.  Fall arrest is required for any worker who is at risk of

  • falling from a height of more than 3 metres (approx. 10 feet);

  • falling into operating machinery;

  • falling into water or another liquid;

  • falling into or onto a hazardous substance or object;

  • falling though an opening in a work surface.
