This Fall Protection - Competent Person course provides the jobsite's authorized person a workable strategy for decreasing accidents while increasing general awareness on the purpose, use, regulations, and hazards of fall protection and the use of fall protection systems.
Discussion will include construction industry requirements. General information will be provided with regard to fall protection requirements while utilizing scaffolding and aerial lifts as a part of their work activities. Participants will gain familiarity with written work procedures, tagging systems, and fall protection.
Compliance Standard: OSHA's Construction Standard specifies how construction industry employers are to protect their workers from fall hazards. Under a new directive issued by OSHA on Fall Protection on December 16, 2010, OSHA canceled an interim enforcement policy that had been put in place in 1995. Effective June 16, 2011, employers utilizing alternative fall protection found in the rescinded 1999 Interim Fall Protection Compliance Guidelines for Residential Construction will be subject to OSHA citations if they fail to comply with 29 CFR 1926.501(b)(13). Under the new directive, all residential construction companies now must follow conventional Fall Protection when they have workers "engaged in residential construction activities 6 feet (1.8 m) or more above lower levels" or must have written, site-specific Fall Protection plans, and now also must provide training to employees that might be exposed to fall hazards and teach them how to recognize and minimize the fall hazards.
Falls are the leading cause of construction fatalities. The OSHA Fall Protection course will help provide your competent person with the tools, knowledge, and resources to be able to train your workers to keep them safe.
Please Note: One constant in OSHA law is that all employees are to be trained on the hazards of their jobs before they start work (HAZCOM). A contractor selects specific training based on the needs of his workers and the potential hazards on site.
