6418O Virtual - Fall Protection Authorized Person Comprehensive

Course Code: 6418O    


Each year, numerous workers suffer the traumatic effects of a fall from height. Workers need to understand these dangers and the options available to help mitigate this hazard. The methods used to protect oneself at height can vary between situations, thus requiring comprehensive training.

In addition to the general principles of working safely at height, this one-day course also covers common fall protection systems, providing knowledge on selection, set-up, and usage. A variety of instructional techniques, including challenge questions, workbook exercises, and practical learning applications, will be used to educate course participants. The curriculum will cover proper pre-use inspection, harness donning, system selection, and system set-up.

The course is suited for those who perform work duties at height in various at-height jobsite situations and will be responsible for selecting and utilizing the appropriate system components. The course material will provide students with an engaging and enjoyable learning environment.

Our 6418 – Authorized Person Comprehensive, is our latest flagship, 1 day fall protection course complete with 3M branding and updated content, including updates to the CSA standards.
