The Qualified Person training provides the fall protection knowledge necessary to design and put into place fall protection systems including anchor systems, horizontal systems, and vertical systems.
While this is a very intensive program which deals with the engineering and design issues of fall protection systems, it should be noted that it is not a structural engineering degree program which requires years of study and practice to complete. Structural building design necessary for building structural analysis, while discussed as a necessary component, is not taught as a component of the curriculum. We include a section on contracting necessary resources so that those individuals who are not structural engineers or who do not have those resources within their company can complete the design process.
4 days (up to 32 hours)
Professional engineers, designers and/or safety professionals or other key personnel that may be required to design and implement fall protection systems on site. This course will include design and engineering calculations, which will require a significant level of mathematic and physics background. It is recommended that participants have some form of design and/or engineering background.
