AWP Fall Protection Combo Training

AWP Fall Protection Combo Training

Commissioned by the maintenance manager of a huge retail shopping mall, this training program was developed. As a result, parts of my original course Personal Fall Protection Training were used and this new training program was born. However, not required were some aspects from the first course. Most importantly are the sections that instruct workers about Fall Protection Harnesses, Lanyards, and Anchor Points. 

Subsequently, the second part has been structured around the AWP manlift.  A structured manual was designed around the Genie Self Propelled Z45/25 Articulating Boom Lift as per our client’s request. Every client can request a manual be created for their own specific Aerial Work Platform. In addition, with the 70-page Student Manual, trainees will find this course easy to comprehend as we go through a 77 frame PowerPoint presentation. Above all else, each person will need to pass a 30-question multiple choice test with an 80% or greater mark. Certainly, they will also need to prove proficiency as well. In addition to that they will show procedures for inspecting their machine and fall protection gear.

Consequently, this initial student manual was constructed with our first client’s equipment in mind. However, we do recognize they’re are a number of other manufactures of AWP lifts. Likewise, the needs you have will be different. As a result, and on request at no extra charge, a student manual for your application will be created. Because different manufactures like Genie, JLG being the most used, the types are very different.  To sum up, Spiders, Scissors, Telescoping and Articulating all operate differently.  In short, tell us what your use and a course will be built for you.
