FreeBird Safety Services Commitment to Each Student

Whereas the workers safety being the prevalent cause, this Personal Fall Protection Training Program was designed with them in mind . The most compelling evidence was my son at the age of 20 years. Important to realize and by definition he is a New and Young Worker. In particular, he only received training that was classed as "Site Specific". That is to say only 30 minutes of in-house instruction was received.  Surprisingly he was geared up and working on a leading edge just after. When I heard that, I designed this training program. What he received prior wasnt training. It wasnt an orientation in Fall Protection. I wouldn't even classify it as a tool box talk. 

Relevant comparison between training programs will have you call me. Without a doubt the cost of this course, the curriculum delivered, and  the extras is one of the least expensive around. Students receive a 60 page student manual personal designed by myself, and 2 laminated wallet calculation cards for swing and fall hazard. All in all, I am also available 24/7 to every past student  with in their certification timeline. Indeed I'll answer questions, give advice and consult with graduation students. Furthermore a laminated wallet certification card will be awarded to graduating students as well as a laminated diploma for their wall. 

Of course it doesn't stop their with what the students receive. I provide lunch for my students. At 12 noon the BBQ is fired up and FreeBird ManCave Burgers are served. Coffee is endless all day.

My personal garuntee: 

Important to realize, if any student does not pass the final exam, they are welcome to stay an additional 2 hours for further 1 on 1 instruction. However, if they still are having difficulties, they will be invited to attend another full training program at no extra cost. Consequently if the successful completion of training is required for certain activities at work, certainly their employer will need to be notified of the non graduating circumstances. 

To emphasize, this course is not about profit, or notoriety. The only factor this course is about revolves around the safety of workers while on the job working at heights. Even so this includes by definition an off duty worker on the roof of their own home. 

  All things considered, Before any task, take 2 minutes and ask yourself one important question.

"What could go wrong"
