Fall Protection Training

Fall Protection Training

AHS Rescue leads the industry in fall protection ensuring the safety of those working at height or in confined spaces with fall protection training.   We are often called upon for consultation on the best equipment and training required for professional applications of rope access (stock: please link this to new rope access training pagee!!), including those working at height on cell or utility towers, fire and police departments and search and rescue teams.  

AHS Rescue partners with Ropes That Rescue to offer two comprehensive courses with the Industrial Rescue Workshop, or the Structural Tower Rescue Workshop.  Industrial Rescue 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 out of eleven classes offered by Ropes That Rescue that incorporated fall protection training.  Confined Spaces training is available in various levels as it is important for industrial workers to be aware of, identify and maneuver safely in confined spaces.  

Industrial and Structural Tower Rescue Workshop for Fall Protection

  • 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.  This course is unique in providing training for both top down and bottom up rescue, addressing important distinctions between the two.  Students will learn effective ways of climbing onto a structure 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 in structural tower rescue cases.  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 towers and bridges, with established fall protection training methods including proper techniques with self-belay lines for all subsequent climbers on the tower.

Confined Spaces Training Workshop

Confined Spaces Training - Provided by our training partner, American Rescue Concepts (ARC), Confined Space Rescue Training provides various levels of confined space training geared towards awareness, operational or technician.  Awareness training provides students with basic knowledge of confined spaces and methods to identify hazards and how to stay safe.  Operation training expands to include procedures to mitigate emergencies by non-entry means.  Technician level of confined space training is a hands-on, technical course covering OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146, for permit required confined spaces.
