It is a legal requirement to be able to perform a “prompt” rescue in a fall arrest event. It’s also best practice for anyone who works at heights, regardless of industry. This course has a small element of classroom instruction, but the majority of the curriculum is hands-on use and rigging of the equipment in various scenarios.

This course meets the criteria for accepted practices in safety, health, and environmental training (ANSI Z490.1), and the requirements of OSHA, ANSI Z359 and A10.32.
