Safety Advisory - 8 Hour Fall Prevention (Online)

Fall Prevention Online Course

Why do you need an 8 hour fall prevention course online? The leading cause of death in the construction industry is from falls. As a result construction workers must have fall protection when working at a height of six feet or more. Fall prevention online course provides training for workers on how to recognize, avoid, minimize, and correct fall hazards on job sites. The course will cover fall hazards, competent person responsibilities, types of fall protection systems, calculation of fall distances, and decide on proper anchorage points among other things.

 

Fall Prevention Training – NYC DOB Requirement

As part of a new regulation (Local Law 196) the NYC Department of Buildings now requires that individuals receive a certain amount of DOB approved training in order to work on NYC construction projects. Among the training required for workers and supervisors is this falls prevention online course. Workers will also need a 30 hour construction training course and a 2 hour drug and alcohol prevention course to meet this requirement.

For a more detailed overview of local law 196 please visit safetycardtracker.com
