FALL PROTECTION THEORETICAL

Review and instruct students on the fundamentals of fall protection learned in the OSHA course on Day 6. To properly become a wind turbine technician you will learn with a hands-on approach, the basic skills to prevent injuries and knowledge of personal protective equipment needed for fall protection concentrated on the wind turbine industry.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

This course will offer information to strive for the improvement of workplace health and safety in the renewable energy industry. Discuss the importance of PPE and how to inspect and properly Don and Doff personal protective equipment using this information as a tool for addressing workplace hazards. Students will learn the tools to properly help wind turbine employers assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present or likely to be present before starting and completing any wind related tasks.

DESCENT DEVICE OVERVIEW

This course will expand the techniques and tools used in automatic and personal rescue devices. Lightweight personal rescue devices as well as high performance descent devices to provide students with the knowledge and solutions for any type of application for rescue in the wind industry.

SELF RESCUE SCENARIO

(Field Training) When the clock starts ticking, you need a rescue plan you can count on to rescue you quickly and efficiently in an emergency situation. The hands on practical use of a self-rescue unit is your rescue plan, a flexible device that attaches to your current safety harness and allows you to lower yourself to safety in the event of a fall from height. This course will offer a simple and effective rescue plan, minimizing risks for you, your coworkers and emergency response personnel. At the end of this course you can work at height without worrying about being left suspended after an arrested fall event. Instead of wondering how long it will take to alert others to your fall, or how long before trained rescuers can gather the appropriate equipment to get you down, you can simply avoid all that and free yourself.
