This course, facilitated by fall protection experts from LJB Inc., covers the fall protection Competent Person responsibilities defined in ANSI/ASSP Z359.2-2017. LJB does not manufacture, sell or distribute fall protection equipment, so our instruction provides unbiased information about the selection, use and limitations of equipment for hazard abatement.

Students will complete exercises on the elements of a managed fall protection program, including hazard identification and control. In addition,students will practice harness fitting, equipment use and inspection, fall clearance calculation, and creation of use procedures. Students will also complete a knowledge check to demonstrate understanding of all concepts introduced in the course. While only their employer may designate the student as a Competent Person for their organization, students will be provided a completion certificate and 2.4 continuing education units (CEUs).
