Course Description

In compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1926.500 subpart M regulations, this fall protection training is required for construction workers and supervisors who work at elevations. This course teaches employees to use fall protection systems in construction settings. Note: While this course can be used to help in a competent person designation, the employer must designate a person as a “competent person”. Per the OSHA regulations, no training provider can award this designation it must be the employer.
This course covers the OSHA Fall Protection Standard for construction and an overview of fall protection methods. Course topics include principles of fall protection, components and limitations of fall arrest systems, the OSHA fall protection training standards, fall protection systems, selection of fall protection measures, and inspection and maintenance of fall protection systems.
Upon course completion students will have the ability to assess compliance with the OSHA Fall Protection Standard, evaluate installed passive systems and fall arrest systems, and develop and implement fall protection plans.
Fall protection is a broad concept that includes training, procedures, rules, systems, and methods intended to protect workers from fall hazards. Fall protection doesn’t mean bulky or cumbersome equipment. It doesn’t interfere with work tasks, and it doesn’t get in the way of coworkers – if you understand the concept and apply it appropriately. Fall protection also implies shared responsibilities. If you are an employer, you must be aware of fall hazards and you must eliminate them or control your employees’ exposure to them.
If your are an employee, you are responsible for following the policies, procedures, and fall protection training requirements established by your employer. Building owners and managers, architects, engineers, and equipment manufacturers also have responsible roles to play during a typical construction project. This course will help you understand the fall-protection concept and how it applies to the construction industry.



Upon successful completion of the fall protection training, you will receive a total of 3 certificates. An email with an e-certificate will be sent to you or your designee immediately upon completing the course and the original certificates (8×10 and pvc wallet card) will arrive in the mail.


Includes U.S. Based support. An experienced and highly qualified instructor is available to you throughout the training process. Our toll free hotline or email will allow access to some of the finest instructors in the U.S.
