What fall protection training involves
Training to become a Fall Protection Competent Person may seem crazy at first glance, but it’s no joke that falls, trips, and slips have long been a major cause of workplace injuries, incidents, and even fatalities. Fall protection training emphasizes the prevention of falls of six feet or more, such as falling from unprotected sides or falling through holes and openings. Other topics covered include working on scaffolds and ladders and proper use of personal fall arrest systems or PFAS.
Painters USA work crews routinely work high off the ground, performing necessary cleaning, painting, and coating services in your facilities. That’s why we make fall protection training and certification a top priority.
Value to our commercial / industrial clients
Falls, trips, and slips have long been a major cause of workplace injuries and incidents, and the absence of competent persons is among the most frequently cited OSHA violations. That’s why it’s important that all contractors and suppliers working in your facilities are safety aware and competent. Even a small incident or injury can disrupt schedules and operations and lead to OSHA violations or worse. Protecting your employees, keeping your facilities safe, and complying with OSHA and other entities are priorities for you. These are shared values and priorities for Painters USA as well.
