OSHA Fall Protection Training Online
Completing fall protection training online is ideal for many tradesmen and workers. Whether you work on a construction site, warehouse, or in any other location where falling might occur, you should be trained on the potential hazards. As OSHA reminds us 1, before any employee is exposed to a fall hazard, the employer must provide OSHA fall protection certification training for each employee who uses personal fall protection systems or who is required to be trained as specified.
There are at least four areas where employees must have fall protection training:
- The nature of the fall hazards in the work area and how to recognize them
- The procedures to be followed to minimize those hazards
- The correct procedures for installing, inspecting, operating, maintaining, and disassembling the personal fall protection systems that the employee uses
- The correct use of personal fall protection systems and equipment, including, but not limited to, proper hook-up, anchoring, and tie-off techniques, and methods of equipment inspection and storage, as specified by the manufacturer
