Event Details

WCTI is hosting this Fall Protection Competent Person class for our members.  Any member who has an employee doing any of the following tasks should consider sending an employee to this training to help them understand the requirements of a “Competent Person” for fall protection.  It is the employer’s responsibility to authorize an employee as the competent person.

These are the tasks that require an onsite Competent Person in Fall Protection:

  • Accessing the roof/skylights for changing filters, motors, inspecting for leaks, gutter cleaning, etc.
  • Climbing on top of machinery/equipment, ovens, paint booths
  • Working on unguarded docks and mezzanines or any other surface that is at a height of 4 feet or more
  • Loading/unloading flatbed trucks
  • Using a harness and lanyard for any work
  • Working from a ladder to change light bulbs or ballasts
  • Working on order pickers and using a belt or harness
  • Hiring contractors to work on your roof or on top of equipment

In addition, this class will also provide an update on the regulations for walking and working surfaces.

By having one of your employees attend this class and by authorizing them as a “competent person”, in your written Walking and Working Surfaces program, you will also qualify for the MSAP points.


This Industrial Fall Protection Awareness Training enables the attendee to be responsible for the fall protection implementation at a manufacturing facility.  Several types of fall protection equipment will be brought in and demonstrated.


  • ​​​The new 2017 OSHA regulations for fall protection.
  • Responsibilities of Competent Persons
  • Inspection of equipment components
  • Fall protection system assessments
