Working at height poses a series of unique risks to the workplace. Height safety requires more than just protecting workers from the risks of working at height. Objects dropped from height can result in personal injury to workers, others at the worksite and equipment, yet these hazards are often overlooked in planning for workplace safety. Remember, fall protection is about you; dropped object prevention is about those around you.
When it comes to protecting your work site, look for quality training courses in world-class facilities, providing curriculums or custom programs that meet your needs. Comprehensive training will provide practical, hands-on experience that incorporates elements workers encounter on a daily basis, including scaffolding, fixed ladders, towers, sloped roofs, rebar walls, elevated catwalks, I-beams and confined spaces. Training courses are designed to meet key industry regulations and standards.
