Fall Protection for the Competent Person

The U.S. Department of Labor lists falls as one of the leading causes of traumatic occupational death in the workplace today.  Any time an employee is working at a height of 6 feet or more, that worker needs to be aware of the proper fall protection practices, as well as use the proper fall protection equipment.  To help ensure that workers adhere to the proper safety precautions, OSHA has mandated that a competent person be present at every job site.

A competent person is defined by OSHA as a designated person with sufficient experience and/or knowledge to recognize fall hazards, correct unsafe conditions, and who has the ability to shut down the worksite until any hazards are corrected.  The competent person should be the most knowledgeable person, in this case about fall protection, on site.

eTraining’s Fall Protection for the Competent Person course ensures that a student will receive all of the proper training pursuant to OSHAs requirement of Competent Persons for this standard 29 CFR 1926.500.  This course will go beyond the basic awareness level of introductory courses and into details necessary when learning not just how to protect yourself, but what it takes to create a safe working environment for those you may be responsible for.  If your needs to not require a full, competent person level course, we also offer an awareness level Fall Protection course.
