Fall Protection – Essentials (3M)*Offsite Only*

This course will allow participants to understand the use of fall protection, as it relates to working at heights. Various fall protection options exist, this course identifies which options may best meet the participant’s needs, and give the tools and knowledge to work at height safely.

Please note: At this time, this course is only offered as an offsite training – at your location. We can offer this training to your group for a minimum charge of 6 participants.


Workers who need basic fall protection training to work only within the setting of an aerial work platform. For this reason, we only offer this training offsite, as our in-house courses contain workers requiring fall protection training for a wide variety of reasons, not just aerial lifts.
