Who is this class for?
The Authorized Person shall properly use, inspect, maintain, store, and care for their Fall Protection equipment and systems. Authorized Persons are the end-users of the Fall Protection equipment, and the course teaches the proper methods for utilizing Fall Protection equipment at heights.
What are the advantages of attending a Fall Protection class if I already use Fall Protection equipment?
This class contains all the information necessary to properly use, inspect, and, maintain Fall Protection equipment on the jobsite. Also, ANSI requires that the users of Fall Protection equipment have documented training adequate to qualify them as an Authorized User of such equipment.
What does the 1-day class entail?
At the beginning of the class we hand out Fall Protection manuals. A PowerPoint presentation covers the following information:
● We discuss all stages of the Fall Protection hierarchy
● We spend a great deal of time covering the four parts of a fall arrest system
● Fall Protection equipment inspection
● Proper care and maintenance of Fall Protection equipment
● The proper donning of the harness, proper usage of the equipment; and when and where the equipment is needed.
Students will participate in a variety of hands-on exercises, which will cover approximately 75% of the class time. Students must demonstrate the proper method to fit/don a harness, make proper connections, and how to make proper tie-off connections. At the end of the class, we will issue a test to make sure the information is retained. Shortly after the conclusion of the class, we will issue cards of completion for those students who pass the test.
What happens if a person is using Fall Protection equipment outside of its limitations?
It will not work properly! The myth is, "If I am wearing the gear, I must be protected." Not true. You must wear the gear, and it must be hooked to an anchor; not hooked to just anything you can find or which way you want, but to a suitable anchor with the system tied off within the limitations of the equipment. Also, the equipment must be inspected prior to use to ensure the integrity of all components. Each employee is responsible for inspecting his or her equipment before using it.
Where can Safety Connection, Inc. perform the class?
We can perform the class at your location or at our indoor training facility located in Baton Rouge, LA.
