Fall Protection Training

3-E Safety Services, LLC conducts a wide range of Fall Protection classes. Classes can be anywhere from one-hour up to 32-hours long. The length of training depends on the requirements for your company or jobsite that you will be working at whether it is an OSHA or EM-385 requirement. The fall protection training can be customized to emphasize your fall protection needs without compromising any OSHA or ANSI standards and training requirements.

Falls continue to be the leading cause of work-related deaths in the construction industry. Over 500 fall related deaths occur each year. Fall protection training is an important part of a worker’s overall safety training. This first step in reducing or eliminating fall hazards is that workers must be able to identify fall hazards and decide the best course of action to protect all workers in the area. In construction, workers at a height of greater than 6 feet above the next walking/working surface, or workers working over a dangerous equipment or machinery, is at risk and needs to have fall protection in place. This height is reduced to 4 feet for general industry workers. Proper fall protection training will go a long way in achieving fewer fall related accidents.

3-E Safety Services’ Fall Protection training course will show a variety of methods to safeguard against falls at height, including how to properly use various forms of fall protection equipment, as well as provide guidance on how managers and foremen can ensure a safe workplace for their workers. This training course is designed to create awareness while overviewing the issues involved with fall protection. It is hands-on and interactive. Students learn to identify potential fall hazards, determine possible solutions, make equipment selections and implement the proper fall protection. This course is required for employees who will be working first hand with the fall protection system while exposed to a fall hazard.
