Who must take this course?
Working from heights is largely unavoidable in the construction industry, and can be very dangerous. Injuries and fatalities occur each year because construction workers were inadequately trained, didn't follow safety procedures, or used improper equipment when working from elevated heights. For this reason, safety training for each person working on a construction site is critical.
