Fall Protection Online Training

Alberta workers are legally required to be trained in the safe use of the fall protection system on job sites where a fall protection system must be used (Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Code). Falls are a leading cause of injuries on Alberta worksites, and even the equipment used for fall arrest and travel restraint can be dangerous without proper training. Get same-day training with our Fall Protection Online Training Course and be ready to obtain practical evaluation by a qualified individual.

What is Fall Protection Training?

Fall protection training encompasses two systems: fall arrest and travel restraint. The fall arrest component refers to systems and equipment that prevent falls from raised areas. Travel restraint refers to systems and equipment that prevents workers from reaching fall-risk areas in the first place. More information about fall protection legislation in Alberta is available here.

Do I need an in-person evaluation?

Upon successful completion of this course, the next step is evaluation by a qualified individual. Your company may have a recommendation or in-house evaluator who can conduct this evaluation. More information about Canadian requirements for fall protection training evaluation can be found here.
