WAH – Fall Protection in Industrial Workplaces

In industrial settings, work sites and workplaces where workers are using certain types of fall protection equipment, employers must make sure that any such worker has completed a Working at Heights Fall Protection training course. This applies to work sites such as large scale industrial construction projects, light industry and heavy industry – in categories like oil drilling & rigs; shipping, shipyards & marine terminals; machine & facility maintenance; and many other industrial settings involving working at heights and a risk of injury due to falls.

The WAH Fall Protection course covers fall protection equipment such as fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets, work belts, safety belts, etc.
