FALL PROTECTION TRAINING - Personal Fall Protection Equipment Inspection Course

 

Structured Activities under RSO Scheme - 7 SDUs
 
“Falling from Height” continued to be the biggest killer in the industries and workplaces.  Most of these accidents are preventable, workers need to know and use proper fall protection equipment.  Another important aspect is the maintenance and check on personal fall protection equipment to ensure that workers who use such equipment are well protected from falling.  Inspectors who conduct the checks on fall protection equipment should and must know the proper and effective ways of inspecting fall protection equipment.  It is therefore of paramount importance that inspectors be competently well and effectively trained before conducting any inspection of equipment.
 
SCAL ACADEMY, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Singapore Contractors Association Limited (SCAL) is organizing a “Personal Fall Protection Equipment Inspection Course” to fulfil the needs of the industry.  Manpower Minister Gan Kim Yong announced that workplaces will have to implement a Fall Protection Plan – according to the “Code of Practice on Safe Working at Height”.  As part of the plan, “Training” is vital that all workers working at height must be able to perform their tasks safely.  We have to undergo a training program encompassing hazard identification, assessing risks and consequences and necessary control measures.  Crucially, all workers must know how to use, maintain, inspect and take care of their personal fall protection equipment.  Hence, sign up and start training your workforce on “Personal Fall Protection Equipment Inspection Course”
