If your employee's are using Fall Protection equipment, they need Fall Arrest Training. The Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association website states:
"If a worker at a worksite can fall 3 metres or more and is not protected by guardrails, the employer must develop a Fall Protection Plan that specifies:
- The fall hazard
- The fall protection to be used (including worker training)
- Procedures used to assemble, maintain, inspect, use, and disassemble the fall protection system
- Worker rescue procedures
- That the Fall Protection Plan is available before the work begins"
Northern Strands runs regular Fall Arrest Training courses throughout Saskatoon and Saskatchewan.
