More Hands On Climbing Training than Anywhere



Competent Person



Who is this class for?


This class is for anyone working at heights with high exposure, decision makers, and supervisors who will be responsible for answering questions about Fall Protection. All job sites should have at least one Competent Person present at all times.


What is a “Competent Person“?


The term "Competent Person" is used in many OSHA standards and documents. An OSHA "Competent Person" is defined as "one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them"[29 CFR 1926.32(f)]. 


Does ANSI require your company to have a “Competent Person”?


ANSI Z359.2-2007 requires that a company provide Competent Persons to supervise authorized persons who are exposed to fall hazards.


What are the advantages of attending a “Competent Person” class?


This class has all the information that a person will need to allow him or her to solve problems dealing with Fall Protection. It will also give that person confidence in knowing that he or she is making the right decision.


What does the “Competent Person” class entail?


At the beginning of the class, we will provide you with a manual. The first day we will

present a PowerPoint presentation with hands on exercise. We will cover the following:


  • Changes in the new ANSI Z359.0-4.2007 standards

  • All parts of the Fall Protection Hierarchy

  • The four parts of a Fall Arrest System

  • Inspection of Fall Protection Systems

  • Standards summary

  • The proper donning of the harness

  • Proper usage of the equipment

  • How to maintain the equipment

  • When and where the equipment is needed

  • Confined space mechanical systems

  • Basic Rescue systems

  • Pre-job planning, JSA’s, and Rescue plans


Students will participate in a variey of hands-on exercises, which will cover 90% of the class time.  Each scenario is explained in detail and a JSA is completed before each climbing scenario is performed. and reviewed in full to make sure that the student understands the proper technique. At the end of the class, we will issue a test to make sure the information is retained. At the conclusion of the class, we will issue a card certifying completion if the student passed the test.


Where can Safety Connection, Inc. conduct the class?
