Advanced Safety offers one or two day tower certifications, both competent climber and authorized climber certifications are accredited through NATE.
COMPETENT CLIMBER - TWO DAY Course designed to train experienced climbers, advanced Fall Protection & equipment, Rescue Techniques, OSHA/ANSI requirements, Rescue Planning and Hazard Assessments.
program is designed to identify and comply with federal OSHA regulations on
"Fall Protection." The program will cover Tower climbing
requirements. Through classroom lecture, this course will focus on hazard
identification, product selection, training, and employee/employers
responsibilities. Course content includes: regulations, fall forces and the
body, equipment selection, care and use, anchorage, protective systems and
rescue requirements. Classroom lesson plans and hands-on sessions will be
conducted to certify students in fall protection. Students must provide their
own fall protection equipment, gloves, boots and hard hat.
This class is for anyone
who works at heights and has to use fall protection. Job positions that require
vertical climbing, such as found in the construction industry, tower industry,
power/utility industry, or perhaps positions that deal with climbing
non-traditional structures, are working in an inherently dangerous occupation.
We are using the NATE
standard due to their knowledge and dedication to facilitating safety,
education and standards for tower erection, service, maintenance industry. The NATE Tower Climbing Training Standard was
developed to bring consistency to the training of tower climbers by
establishing the minimum standards to which all climbers should be
trained. Advanced Safety agrees and
recognizes NATE as the Primary Standard to which we will instruct and use for
AUTHORIZED CLIMBER - ONE DAY Course designed to train Fall Protection &
equipment, OSHA/ANSI requirements, for individuals new to the Tower Climbing
OSHA requires 100% tie-off for FALL PROTECTION. Being 100%
tied-off guarantees no accidental injuries or death from falls. Training is
necessary to guarantee correct knowledge and usage of personal fall arrest
systems. Even with the most seasoned climber, the potential for falls exist.
The newest OSHA requirement is not only for fall protection training, but for
the vertical rescue training of personnel in the event that a climber cannot
get down. OSHA and/or your client will require a vertical rescue plan and
training in vertical rescue.
Advanced Safety designed a 60' structure on our location for
fall protection & rescue training. The tower was designed to give the
climber the experience of using a ladder to climb, using pegs to climb, the use
of a safe climbing device, and other features.
