Hazmat School’s California-specific Fall Protection training course is designed for California-based workers who might be exposed to fall hazards. The program shall enable each employee to recognize the hazards of falling and shall train each employee in the procedures to be followed in order to minimize these hazards as well as go over some ladder safety techniques.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

Managers and employees in California must be trained in fall protection if the job site features any raised platforms, walkways and staircases or slippery or unstable surfaces. Many different industries take personnel to dangerous heights, including:

  • Contractors on rooftops or around skylights
  • Construction workers upon girders or scaffolding
  • Painters or window cleaners on the sides of structures
  • Utility workers in cranes
  • Marine and shipyard employees on dock boards
  • Industrial plant operators using catwalks
  • And many more

Many workers are surrounded by different types of equipment, including ladders, harnesses and safety netting. Understanding where to deploy these and how they are used is vital to reduce the risk of accidents.

INDUSTRIES THAT REQUIRE THIS COURSE

Many employers need a Fall Protection Plan and training for workers who perform duties at elevated levels. The triggers for fall protection vary by industry.

For example, if the working height exceeds 7.5 feet in California, proper safety measures must be implemented to limit the risk of injury or death. Regardless of working height, any area around operating plant machinery such as vats and conveyor belts needs protection.

WHAT REGULATIONS DOES THIS COURSE SATISFY?

Hazmat School’s online fall protection training course meets the fall protection guidelines set in Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations. This includes the written Fall Protection Plan (§1617.1), the requirements of fall protection (§1669-1672) and specifications of safety fixtures and openings in Subchapter 7 (§3209-3239).

Cal/OSHA does not require routine recertification for fall protection. However, in the event of a near miss or employee violation, retraining is strongly recommended, if not required.

TOPICS COVERED

Our California-specific training course will raise awareness of various fall hazards as well as the proper use of established safety measures. For employers, the material discusses how to create and sustain a Fall Protection Plan. The course also touches on differences between California’s specifications on protective structures and the existing federal guidelines.
