Able Safety Consulting - 8 Hour Fall Prevention

8 Hour Fall Prevention Online

Why do you need a fall prevention course? 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. The 8 Hour Fall Prevention course provides training for workers on how to recognize, avoid, minimize, and correct fall hazards on jobsites. 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.

 

SELF-PACED ONLINE TRAINING FOR 8 HOUR FALL PREVENTION

This self-paced online training equips workers with the necessary knowledge to recognize, avoid, and address fall hazards effectively on construction sites. Our online course is accessible on any device, allowing learners to progress at their own pace. Upon successful completion, participants automatically receive their certification via email, affirming their competence in fall prevention.

 

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 8 hours of fall prevention training. Workers will also need a 30 hour construction training course and a 2 hour drug and alcohol prevention course to meet this requirement.
