Authorized Rescue Training
This course is intended for those whose job responsibilities involve the participation in a site-specific rescue program for workers at heights. This course will provide training in basic rescue procedures as they relate to facility-specific rescue procedures in a general industry environment.
ITAC personnel will review and/or develop facility-specific procedures prior to instruction and develop a training curriculum accordingly. This course is geared towards hands-on participation with some classroom involvement. A basic level of physical fitness is required. Rescue procedures will be practiced in-situ at each associated hazard. Equipment and gear used must be the same as any gear regularly available onsite.
Please note that this course requires rescue procedures be established prior to instruction.
