In Need of a Fall Protection Course?

Did you know there are 60,000 fatal accidents yearly on construction sites globally? According to the International Labor Organization, that translates to one serious fall every ten minutes. 

It is your responsibility as an employer to protect your employees from falling from heights. Are you in need of a fall protection course? The training will come in handy in;

  • Developing an effective fall protection program
  • Equipping your workers with excellent fall protection skills on use, inspection, and maintenance of safety equipment
  • Fitting a practical fall protection system

Failure of protection plans is a common occurrence since employees lack technical knowledge. The heart of this fall protection course is total prevention of risks. In cases where complete elimination is difficult, your workers will apply the following controls assisted by the supervisor.

Engineering controls: This involves implementing physical changes such as fitting guard rails to make the workplace less risky.

Administrative Controls: It is one thing to have a fall plan, but implementation is a whole other thing. The course will foster adherence to policies while keeping the safety procedures up-to-date.

Personal Protective Equipment: The safety of your employees is a great measurement of how successful your fall protection systems are. Fall protection training will enable them to choose the appropriate components and systems to use while undertaking a project at heights.

The course also prepares workers to use not only personal protective equipment but also fall restraint and fall protection systems in either preventing or arresting a catastrophic fall hazard. To be on the safe side, register your employees for a fall protection course which will teach them how to combine all the above to work safely at heights.

Why a Fall Protection Course?

Though cited as the leading cause of workers injuries and deaths, falls from higher heights are preventable hazards. The solution lies in proper fall protection training. Additionally, your company will reap the following benefits.

  1. A Healthy Workforce: Your construction company will register zero to minimal injuries or deaths; hence your workers will be all time fit to continue with their duties.

  2. Reduced Liability Claims and Insurance Premiums: A history of few injuries and reduced liability claims will have you paying less in insurance premiums. Your business will, therefore, have a larger pool of resources for scaling purpose hence increased revenue.
