Fall Rescue for Tower Workers

MI Safety Inc is actively promoting our Tower Worker Fall Rescue course. This course is designed for telecommunication tower workers, ski lift workers, and oil and gas processing workers. In these types of work environments, there is typically a limited number coworkers/rescuers and work is in a remote location. The only option for rescue is for the casualty to be rescued by a coworker.

The course covers fall rescue planning, rope systems for fall rescue, primary and secondary securement, first aid, kernmantle ropes and knots, 4:1 pulley systems, prussiks, mechanical ascenders, descent control devices like the MPD and Petzl ID. The course consists of a short theory section and the majority of the day is spent doing practical exercises.

This course is offered at our site at the Leduc #1 Historic Site, which despite the name, is actually 2km south of Devon Alberta on Highway 60 at 50339, Hwy 60. We can also offer this course at your site, if you have a group of workers.
