Course Description

SSM’s Working At Heights course provides students with the most current legislative information, including industry best practices. This program teaches participants how to exercise the hierarchy of controls of fall prevention, fall restraint, and fall arrest as each situation will be different when working at heights.

Students will learn how to inspect fall protection equipment, how to don a harness, and set up a personal fall protection system.  Students will also have the opportunity to experience what it feels like to hang in a harness. Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of this course.

This course includes a written and practical skill assessment to validate training competencies.
