Safety One’s Rooftop Fall Protection Training course is designed for employees working on residential or commercial rooftops

Working on rooftop sites presents workers with a variety of challenges; what type of fall protection is required, when should it be utilized, what regulations are relevant to the work I’m doing? Safety One’s Rooftop Fall Protection Training was developed to provide answers for workers in telecommunications, electrical, HVAC, or any other work which requires rooftop access. Students will learn to evaluate hazards frequently found on rooftops and how to safely mitigate them. They’ll also learn how to effectively develop and execute a rescue plan for the type of work performed.
