Prerequisites
  • Candidates should be able to read, write and understand English as all documentation, presentations and examination paperwork will be in English only.
Topics

The session will include the requirements to perform a pre-use safety inspection of the equipment; the faults and dangers that may be identified; which items of FPE are appropriate for each identified work task; how each item of FPE is to be used to create a safe Fall Protection System; and, the dangers of falling. The session does not cover the practical skills required to carry out the identified work task/s; or, how to perform a rescue of either a worker stranded in a high work position or of a worker who sustains an arrested fall – all these skills are dealt with by other training sessions.
