Tower Climber SAFER is geared toward residential wind, communications tower,
and meteorological (met) lattice tower workers.  This program exceeds the NATE Tower Climber Fall Protection Training Standard.

 

TWO-DAY CLASS 

The course focuses on industry-specific case studies, fall protection systems and regulations. In addition, participants will learn the skills to identify and assess industry hazards as well as how to implement control measures to provide a SAFER working environment. Students will perform a variety of hands on exercises from equipment inspections to actual rescue scenarios of co-workers from LTC’s High Angle Rescue Training Tower to create the most realistic training environment available off of an actual site. Students should be prepared for an informative and rewarding educational experience.

Topics include:
  • Describe the main dangers of working at height
  • Carry out a risk assessment of work-at-height issues (includes requirements for rescue)
  • Describe the main legislation that governs work at height.
