NOTES:

This two-day course completes the Fall Protection for the Competent Person Certificate offered by the Oklahoma Safety Council.  This certification is designed to comply with the Army Corps of Engineers (EM385) requirements for the training requirements for a competent person. All three courses must be completed in the same calendar year to obtain the Fall Protection for the Competent Person Certificate.

OSHA defines a “competent person” as “one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them”

Keep in mind, no training courses can make you a competent person. Only your employer can designate you as a competent person and must ensure you have the knowledge, expertise, and authority to identify, predict and resolve fall protection hazards on your jobsite or in your workplace.

Member price: $250

Non-Member price: $375

Yes. If you have PFAS equipment, they are useful in the Fall Protection Triad.
