Safety Training has become one of the most essential aspects for any employer within the industry and therefore these courses have been designed with this in mind. Accidents involving falls are complex events frequently comprising of a variety of human and equipment-related factors. A sound working knowledge of fall protection and the efficient use of appropriate fall arrest equipment by skilled and trained operatives are essential for working safely. Against the background of today’s regulatory and commercial challenges, it is in an employer’s interest to select fall protection systems appropriate to the identified hazards, install adequate safety systems, and train employees in the proper selection, use and maintenance of all protection systems.
Fall arrest users require the knowledge and skills to enable them to inspect and use their equipment safely and efficiently. Safety regulations require employers to train employees, who might be exposed to fall hazards, on how to recognise such hazards and minimise them. Employers are advised to produce certification that identifies the employee trained and the training date. Retraining should be provided as necessary.
