Equipment Inspection Training Is More Effective In A Controlled Environment
Our hands-on equipment inspection training is a fall protection certification program geared to two specific user levels. The first is generally conducted immediately following our two-day “competent person” training, and gives participants the opportunity to inspect and pass or fail a variety of fall protection systems and components in a controlled environment before having the responsibility to conduct annual inspections in the actual workplace. The second is an eight-hour course for the person responsible for issuing equipment to users. This person, while not having the level of responsibility of a competent person, is responsible for inspecting equipment prior to releasing it to ensure that worker safety is not compromised by using equipment that should be removed from service.

Who Should Attend – (a) A tool crib worker who needs to inspect the equipment prior to issuing to the users, but does not have the level of responsibility the competent person does.

This individual might need additional hands-on inspection experience to broaden their education.
