1438O Virtual - EM385 Competent Person Refresher Program

Course Code: 1438O     Duration: 8hrs    


This 8 hour refresher training course is for those individuals who have previously taken our EM385 Competent Person training.

Protecting workers at-height is a challenging task and is dependent on particular job site situations and individual worker duties. There are many fall protection solutions available to workers, each having its own specific requirements. Understanding each option and proper implementation requires oversight by an experienced individual with a higher-level of knowledge and safety training.

This one-day refreshes students on the various components of a worksite fall protection program and will also help develop the skills required of an EM385 Competent Person. Participants will learn course content through a combination of direct classroom instruction and multiple workshops.

Course participants are those who may be involved with a managed fall protection program including the employer, supervisor, safety personnel, workers, and rescuers. The course material will provide students with an engaging and enjoyable learning environment.
