When it comes to protecting your work site, look for quality training courses in world-class facilities, providing curriculums or custom programs that meet your needs. Comprehensive training will provide practical, hands-on experience that incorporates elements workers encounter on a daily basis, including scaffolding, fixed ladders, towers, sloped roofs, rebar walls, elevated catwalks, I-beams and confined spaces. Also always ensure courses meet industry regulations and standards.
Workers’ lives are on the line every day, but ensuring their safety starts long before the job begins. No one understands this better than 3M Fall Protection. Our training is based on more than 70 years of expertise in fall protection around the globe.
Open enrollment classes allow workers to get a mix of classroom and hands-on training using a formal curriculum in a facility that utilizes the same structures your workers use on a daily basis. 3M Australia Safety Training offers a full range of fall protection and industrial rescue courses at our training centres.
In some cases, it may be more cost effective to have the trainers come to you. You may have a large crew or want workers to experience the training in their own real-world environment. In these cases, we can send a trainer to you with all the equipment needed.
Sometimes you simply want workers to gain a better awareness of fall protection. In these cases, a mobile demonstration may be all you need. Our fleet of specialized vehicles can bring on-site, hands-on fall protection demonstrations to your workforce with actual drop-tests and force measuring instruments.
3M Australia Safety Training delivers accredited training to Australian students, however 3M is able to offer a broad curriculum of courses globally in training centres around the world. If you need a global training offering please contact us and we can work with you to make this a reality.
Open Enrolment Fall Protection Classes
Selecting the right class means accounting for what needs to be learned or achieved, by whom, and the quality of the instruction.
Each course will cover specific topics and teach an appropriate level of skills. Some courses address working at heights, others working in confines spaces; some are for the workers themselves, others for rescuers, and still others for those who train the workers or rescuers.
Some workers require training to a particular standard or to receive a formal certification. Be sure to select courses that meet that need.
The experience and competence of trainers, and the thoroughness of the curriculum they teach, is critical to the effectiveness of a training course. Look for courses with experienced, certified trainers and a strong history of expertise.
How you learn also has a significant impact on course effectiveness. Effective training facilities will offer hands-on experiences that match the environment you work in every day.
“Thinking About Fall Protection” is an eleven-part educational video series designed to give an overview of the basics of fall protection. The series covers the ABCD’s of fall protection, at-heights fundamentals, fall clearance calculations, and types of falls and hazards. The video series is not a substitute for certified fall protection training, but does provide an excellent introduction to the topic.
