Personal Fall Protection Equipment Inspection Course
To provide comprehensive training for candidates who require certification in the control, maintenance and examination of Personal Fall Protection Equipment. Rope access technicians, rope access supervisors, safety supervisors, Mountain Rescue & Civil Defence Force operatives, those responsible for worksite or stores, lifting equipment inspectors as well as industrial PPE suppliers/shop will benefit from this course.
Legislation, approved codes of practice and guidance documents in most workplaces across the world, such as the IRATA ICoP and Safe Work Australia model C.O.P, require work at height equipment to be thoroughly examined / periodically inspected at regular intervals by a ‘competent person’. This Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) approved course teaches candidates how to systematically manage and inspect Personal Protective Equipment for work at height (collectively called Personal Fall Protection Equipment) throughout its lifetime.
Course topics are covered in details using a combination of hands-on product inspection training, and formal presentations.
At the end of the course, following successful completion of a formal assessment and verification by an independent moderator, we deem you ‘competent’ to be able to undertake thorough examinations of equipment that we verify during the course.
