Working at elevated heights presents a serious danger of falling. Falls can be caused by inattentiveness, slippery surfaces, working in awkward or out-of-balance positions, or insufficient training. This course highlights numerous methods of prevention and protection, including fall arrest systems, the equipment associated with fall prevention and protection systems, vertical and horizontal lifelines, as well as inspection and maintenance guidelines. This course also discusses associated topics such as the proper procedure for putting on a body harness, lifeline swing hazards, calculating fall space clearance, and harness suspension syndrome.
