Rooftop Fall Protection

Course Length: 1 Day/8 Hours

This training will provide the worker a comprehensive Rooftop Fall Protection training experience designed for working on roof top and extension ladders (less than or up to 40’ in extended length). Upon completion, students will understand OSHA and ANSI standards as they apply to rooftop fall protection. In addition, each student will have the knowledge and skills to be designated ‘competent rooftop’, as they will be trained to identify unsafe acts and unsafe conditions in rooftop operations.

This course will cover:

  • Introduction to Fall Protection and explanation of Fall Protection systems
  • Rules & Regulations Overview – OHSA, ANSI
  • Responsibilities of various training levels
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Ladder Safety Systems
  • Work area – Flat roof, low slope, steep roof
  • Safety systems – Horizontal and self retracting lifelines, guardrails, safety nets, calculated clearances
  • Emergency plan – Review current/Assistance in developing an EAP
  • Rescue plans – Self, assisted, plan development

Upon completion of the classroom session, students will relocate to a practical skills training site. Proper skills and techniques will be taught to the student, and students will provide return demonstrations to the CITCA instructors. Each student will be evaluated for his/her competencies by the instructor, and the student’s compliance with proper skills and techniques will be documented and submitted to their employer.

This training will incorporate the most updated version of the OSHA 1910 Walking/Working surfaces standard.

RF Safety and Site Hazard Awareness

Course Length: 1 Day/8 Hours

PART 1: RF (Electromagnetic) Safety

Safe work practices start with recognizing hazards and taking steps to minimize the risk to the worker. For work sites involving potentially hazardous radiofrequency radiation, the tower technician should evaluate the RF protection component of the overall program. This presentation will discuss the safety features necessary for the protection of the technician working in an RF environment. These include measurements to evaluate the effectiveness of RF controls; to ensure proper maintenance of RF radiating equipment; to develop work practices to minimize exposures; to obtain information to be used in training workers regarding their potential hazards and how they are controlled; to identify “RF Hazard” zones and other areas requiring signs and training; to determine the need for medical surveillance; as an alternative or enhancement of Lockout/Tagout procedures; to evaluate the effectiveness of RF personal protective equipment; and as a periodic audit of the effectiveness of the RF Protection Program.

Content includes:

  • Basic Definition
  • Electric and Magnetic Fields
  • Health Effects of RF-Microwave Radiation
  • RF-Microwave Protection and Safe Work Practices
  • RF-mw Measurement
  • Regulations, Standards and Guidelines
  • Elements of the Hazard Control Program

PART 2: Site Safety Awareness

Every job related accident can be traced back to one of two factors: unsafe acts (human) or unsafe conditions (environmental). The 4 hour segment on job site safety looks at accidents caused by both, and “lessons learned” from these accidents. It also looks at safety short-cuts, and the critical outcomes that come about as the result.

This segment will familiarize the student with the recommended signage to be utilized on most communications related job sites and equipment to assure personnel and equipment safety.

To achieve compliance, this course addresses the following standards:

  • OSHA 1910.1200 – Hazard Communication
  • OSHA 1910.1201 – DOT Markings Placards and Labels
  • OSHA 1910.144 – Marking Physical Hazards
  • OSHA 1910.147 – Lockout – Tagout
  • DOT 49 CFR – Hazmat Regulations

Course content includes:

  • Construction Site Signage and Information
  • Emergency Contact/Response Information
  • Material Safety Data Sheets
  • Hazard Communication Labels/Signs
  • Signage and Labeling
  • Workplace Safety Signage
  • Site/Work Zone Signage
  • Equipment Signage – Capacity Charts/Graphs
  • Transport Safety Signs
  • Traffic Control – Flagger Safety
  • Tower Signage – Hand Signals
  • Confined Space Signage
  • Utility Safety Signage
  • Fire Safety Signage
  • Personal Protection Signs/Symbols
  • Final Exam
