Fall Protection

Course description

On April 1, 2013 an updated fall protection rule for construction went into effect. The intent of this workshop is to overview these updated construction rule requirements. Included in this class is information on:

  • New and updated definitions
  • General requirements
  • Fall protection regardless of height
  • Fall protection at 4 feet
  • Fall protection at 10 feet
  • Fall Arrest Restraint and Positioning systems
  • Training and other fall protection information

This is an overview class of the revised rule material for construction and not a complete training on fall protection in general. The workshop is designed for employers and employees who work in the construction trades.
