Fall Protection Training

Fall Protection Training

AHS Rescue leads the industry in fall protection ensuring the safety of those working at height with industry specific fall protection training. We are often called upon for consultation on choosing the best equipment and training required for professional applications of rope access. Those often include working at height on cell or utility towers, fire and police first responders and search and rescue teams.  

AHS Rescue partners with Ropes That Rescue to offer two comprehensive courses. The Industrial Rescue Workshop focuses on both top down and bottom up rescue scenarios with more emphasis on top down rescue, while the Structural Tower Workshop concentrates on structural rescue from the ground up. These are only two of the eleven training opportunities offered by the internationally-known Ropes That Rescue that incorporate fall protection training.


Fall Protection in Industrial and Structural Tower Rescue Workshops

  • Industrial Rescue Workshop - The Industrial Rescue Workshop (IRW) is a hands-on fall protection training course with emphasis on structural rescue from difficult and challenging locations that may occur in an above ground tower environment. Students will learn effective ways of climbing onto structures safely with proven climbing methods and tips for strategizing your route and rest positions.  
  • Structural Tower Rescue Workshop - The techniques learned in the Structural Tower Rescue Workshop (STRW) emphasize tower and structural rescue from the ground up. In approximately 95% of structural rescue cases, the rescuer can gain access to the victim’s location with top down rope rescue methods, although effective ground up rescue is vital. With 99% of all above ground towers in the United States carrying electrical power transmission lines, there is only one chance to get it right with lives at stake.  

Students learn several ways to safely climb structures such as towers and bridges, with established fall protection training methods including proper techniques with self-belay lines for all subsequent climbers on the structure.
