  • Fall Protection

    Fall Protection (Competent Person)

    Length: 7 hours   Copyright: 2015
    Brent Cooley, MS, CIH, CSP
    Center of Excellence for Safety in the Arts
    Working at height presents routine challenges and significant risks in Performing Arts operations and productions. Serious injuries or fatalities can occur as a result of a fall from height while working or performing in the theater. Applying Cal-OSHA Standards and usual control methods developed for the roofing and construction industries can be difficult in the Performing Arts.  With these thoughts in mind, I have developed a 2-day Fall Protection Competent Person Training targeted and geared toward theater operations and activities. The training will allow individuals to better recognize, evaluate, and develop controls for the types of hazards that exist in many theater venues. The training is based on the ANSI Z359.2 - 2007 (Minimum Requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program) Competent Person criteria and Fed-OSHA 1926.503(a) Fall Protection Standard for the Construction Industry. Relevant Cal-OSHA regulations and corresponding standards will also be reviewed and covered.
