** THIS COURSE REPLACED THE FORMER OSSA-APPROVED FALL PROTECTION TRAINING COURSES
Workers who need basic fall protection training to work in areas with potential fall hazards.
Note: While this basic course can be used as part of a worker’s competency assessment, the employer must designate a worker as a “competent person” based on the specific task assigned.
