Course Overview - Why Take This Course?

The training provided in this course covers all aspects of fall arrest, work position, and fall restraint lanyards and inertia blocks. This training course is a mix of theory with practical application.

There are 3 categories of work. Careful consideration must be given to ensure that the safest solution is chosen when working at height.

1.Work Restraint
This category of work covers techniques that help to restrict the worker from falling over the edge.

2. Work Position
The lanyard used in this category is designed to suspend the worker in their work position. When using this type of lanyard, it is advised that you have a backup system in place.

3. Fall Arrest
This category is the only one that allows a fall to take place. The fall arrest reacts by arresting the fall in a controlled manner. The most important factor is to make sure that when using fall arrest that you have adequate clearance and there are no obstacles during a fall.
