Fall Protection

COURSE DESCRIPTION:univ_compabile-sm

ABCS has designed and developed this online Fall Protection course to provide you with the knowledge to help minimize fall hazards and protect yourself and others from serious injury. Upon successful completion, you will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of fall protection
  • Identify fall protection systems and components
  • Calculate Free Fall Distance and Minimum Clearance Required
  • Explain fall protection planning and procedures

Alberta legislation was used extensively in the development of this course as Alberta has some of the most rigorous legislative standards in Canada. CSA, ANSI, CEN and industry standards were also used. Although this course provides employers with a means of fulfilling their OH&S requirements, the course focuses on the safety of individuals working in the field.

PROCTORING:
