Falls from heights can cause serious injuries and fatalities, making fall protection training crucial for workers in industries where they may be exposed to such hazards. In Canada, falls are one of the leading causes of workplace injuries, which is why proper fall protection training is essential to reduce the risk of falls.
At Mainland Safety Training Company, we offer a comprehensive Fall Protection Awareness course designed to provide workers with the necessary knowledge and skills to work safely at heights. Our course covers all essential topics related to fall protection, including the use of fall protection equipment, planning, supervision, and training.
Why is Fall Protection Training Important?
Falls from heights can cause injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to more severe injuries, such as broken bones and head trauma. In some cases, falls can even result in fatalities. Workplace falls can occur in various industries, including construction, roofing, mining, and telecommunications. Workers in these industries may work at heights daily, making them more susceptible to falls.
Therefore, it’s essential for workers to receive proper fall protection training, which includes recognizing fall hazards, evaluating and controlling them, and using appropriate fall protection equipment to reduce or eliminate the risk of falling. Fall protection training also covers how to create a fall protection plan, which is essential for any organization with workers at heights.
