Level -I and II Industrial Fall Protection Training


These training packages are designed specifically for personnel working in an industrial environment, in manufacturing plants, power generating facilities, refineries, or in any location where fall hazards may exist. In addition to helping workers and managers be more alert and aware of fall hazards the training gives participants the hands on experience they need to know what types of fall protection methods to implement and how to monitor and maintain them. The courses also provide instruction in the most efficient rescue techniques to use in an industrial environment. The courses include a mix of classroom presentation and hands on training with the majority of time spent in setting up and practicing fall protection methods, and safe work and rescue techniques. Our courses are fast moving and interactive requiring a high degree of commitment and energy from each student.

A written exam and skills observation are used to evaluate students during the training. Upon successful completion of the training, participants receive a certificate of training, which is valid for 2 years from the date of training.

Each student should be equipped with basic fall protection gear to participate in the course. This includes: approved full body work harness, helmet or hardhat, a twin leg fall arrest lanyard, and a work positioning device. Information regarding required gear and equipment will be provided well in advance of the training. ETI offers a source of safety and rescue equipment and can assist the organizations we train with gear purchases. This training is available as a Level-I, or Level-II course.
