Courses Fall Protection
 
 
Introduction:
Falls from height are the leading cause of accidental death and injury on the job in Ontario. Ladders, roofs and scaffolds represent essential fall hazards, particularly in the construction industry. CFTC Fall Protection Course is designed to give workers means and knowledge to prevent and protect themselves from falls from height and reduce fall related injuries. Participants will be trained in selection and use of proper protection procedures and gear, inspection and maintenance of protective equipment. 

Compliance
:

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), Reg. 851, section 85 states that; “Where a worker is exposed to the hazard of falling and the surface to which he or she might fall is more than three metres below the position where he or she is situated:

*URL

 
 

  • the worker shall wear a serviceable safety belt or harness and lifeline adequately secured to a fixed support and so arranged that the worker cannot fall freely for a vertical distance of more than 1.5 metres; and

  • the fall arresting system described in clause (a) shall,

  • have sufficient capacity to absorb twice the energy and twice the load that under the circumstances of its use may be transmitted to it, and

  • be equipped with a shock absorber or other devices to limit the maximum arresting force to 8.0 kilonewtons to the wearer.


The course includes the following topics:

  • Identification of fall hazards

  • Equipment selection

  • Understanding of anchorage points

  • Fall protection systems and components

  • Basic energy dissipation principles

  • Calculating fall clearances

  • Rescue plan importance

  • Standards and regulations

  • Body support selection and application

  • Equipment inspection


Practical Session
:

Many work environments do not enforce the use of proper body harness to protect workers from falls from height. If body harness is used but worn incorrectly, this may give the worker a sense of false security and result in higher likelihood of accidents. During the practical session each participant will be fitted with proper body harness and suspended from height. The instructor will also demonstrate how not to use safety equipment and avoid injuries


Duration
:

Four hour (4) program includes classroom theory and practical training delivered on-site at the place of work or off-site in our training centre.

Program Includes:

  • Fall Protection manual

  • Record of training

  • Written exam (multiple-choice questionnaire test)
