NRCA offers new in-person fall-protection training course

Did you know the Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires you to have a qualified competent person for any fall-protection training you conduct? To comply with the Army Corps of Engineers’ EM 385 standards, your trainer must have successfully completed a 24-hour fall-prevention course.

To help you comply with these requirements and ensure your workers understand the latest fall-protection techniques, NRCA now offers an in-person, hands-on training course.

NRCA’s three-day, roofing-specific Fall Protection Competent Person Training is perfect for foremen, crew leaders, safety directors and NRCA Qualified Trainers. Participants learn the latest information about fall hazard recognition (including job hazard analysis); fall-protection system specifications and limitations; detailed inspection protocols for fall-protection equipment and roof deck integrity; self-rescue and assisted rescue from an arrested fall; effective training techniques and more.

NRCA will offer a Fall Protection Competent Person Training course Feb. 22-24, 2022, in Elgin, Ill. Learn more.
