NIPSTA presents a half-day Fall Protection training program in order to educate and inform public works employees about safety features and the application of new standards.
Accidents are often attributable to one of several factors: unstable working surfaces, misuse of protection equipment, and human error. Studies have shown that the use of guardrails, fall arrest systems, safety nets, and travel restriction systems can prevent many injuries and deaths from falls.
Topics to be addressed in this session:
- Fall Protection Systems
- Donning & Doffing
- Working Surfaces
- Suspension Trauma
- Bucket Truck/Scissor Lift
- Protective Equipment
- Controlled Access Zones
- Rescue Plans
