Fall Protection Competent Person Training

Falls are the number one killer of construction workers. It is imperative that construction companies place a heavy emphasis on fall prevention training.  

There are many different types of fall prevention methods and systems. Construction employers need a dedicated person on staff who understands the available options and can determine the best choices for different projects. 

On every construction site where elevated work is underway, OSHA rules require that a competent person be present to make these decisions. Construction Superintendents, Foremen, and Project Managers are excellent candidates for this training course.
