Competent Person-Fall Protection-Scaffolding-Trenching and Excavation

Serious injuries and even deaths occur every year primarily because of ignorance of, or non-compliance with, clear OHSA mandates. Our Competent Person Fall Protection Course provides extensive and detailed training to address every aspect of Fall Protection as outlined in OSHA rule 1926 Subpart M. Anyone with responsibility in the areas of purchasing scaffolding or supervising its use would greatly benefit from taking this course. In addition, OSHA also requires a competent training supervisor for all excavation and trenching job sites. This workshop also includes a component that addresses the scope and application of Subpart P - Excavation standards, definitions, general requirements, requirements for protective systems, soil classification and handling, and OSHA inspections.

Participants in the Competent Person Fall Protection Course will learn how to:

  • Conduct a hands-on inspection of equipment to assure proper fitting of equipment
  • Develop an inspection report of fall hazards
  • Understand the principles of fall protection
