Is virtual training really comparable to in-person/hands-on training? What are the benefits?

Virtual classrooms contain all the same elements and student learning objectives as in-person classrooms, with just a few adjustments and accommodations to meet the virtual need. Some of the benefits include:

  • Savings are quickly accumulated without the need for travel and other expenses.
  • Virtual training allows the trainee to ask questions – real time – and receive instant feedback from the instructor and the other safety professionals in the training just as they would in an in-person training.
  • Virtual training allows you to train in the convenience of your home or in a safe conference space.
  • Equipment demonstration for the hands-on portion of training now includes the use of our new inspection app featuring AR Technology (Augmented Reality). We also require students to have certain pieces of equipment, and our instructors share a variety of equipment on camera.

I am the Competent Person at my jobsite and perform the annual equipment inspections. Am I liable if there is an accident using the equipment I last inspected?

Based on experience, outcomes will vary depending on the OSHA representative, OSHA office, situation, incident, and even state. Please consider the facts:

    • OSHA is the LAW. OSHA states in the regulations that a, “Pre use Inspection” (by the user or Authorized Person) of fall protection equipment is required before each use. 
    • When a Competent person performs the Annual Documented CP FP Equipment Inspection that shows that they have gone above the OSHA law, complied with the manufactures recommendations, and followed the ANSI standard (Z359). The employee must have a current certificate on file.
    • As soon as that piece of equipment leaves the inspectors hands it is the RESPONSIBILITY of the user to inspect it before it is used.
    • It is the employers responsibility to certify an employee as a Competent Person and, “Ensure a safe and healthy workplace”. OSHA will hold the employer responsible unless, through their investigation, they are able to prove willful negligence on behalf of the user and/ or competent person.

I am the Competent Person at my jobsite and require certification. Which training do I need?

It is the responsibility of the employer to certify their employee as competent [based off OSHA 1926.503(b)]. Becoming a competent person is a two-step process.

  1. The first step is the employee's training and/or experience.
  2. The second step is that the company (your employer) must deem you as  "competent" based on your experience and training.

The standard does not state what type of training is needed. OSHA is depending on the employer to pick the best training for their company. Most companies look for certificates from PPE Manufactures to make sure the training is credible.

We offer a 16-Hr. Fall Protection Competent Person training that would meet the regulatory requirements. Additionally, if you are new to the safety field and will be responsible for the annual inspection of the company’s personal fall arrest systems, we offer a third day (8-Hr.) class which will give you a focused day of hands-on inspection.

I only perform the annual equipment inspections at my jobsite. Which training do I need?

If you only inspect the fall protection equipment at your jobsite and DO NOT need to be classified as a Competent Person, we offer a 8-hr. fall protection equipment inspection course designed to elevate your equipment inspection knowledge. This course is designed for:

  • A tool crib worker that needs to inspect the equipment prior to issuing to the users, but does have the level of responsibility the competent person does.

This course is also designed for any individual who is new to the safety field and will be required to act as a "competent person" - conducting the annual inspection of the company’s personal fall arrest systems and who needs additional hands-on inspection experience.

    Do I need Train the Trainer training if I instruct employees internally?

    If you are already training within your company, you may not need the Train the Trainer program. A Competent Person certificate holder can instruct new and existing employees on the ABC of fall protection and prevention (how to wear and use their personal fall protection equipment and inspection prior to each use.) A record of attendance to document the internal training is efficient.

    About Train the Trainer

    Our Train the Trainer program is not a training course on fall protection and is not designed to make students a Competent Person. This class reviews the competent person material picking out sections and teaching you how to teach those parts to an audience. The 16-hr competent person class must be taken prior to attending the train the trainer.

    There is some adult education during the class discussing how to create a PowerPoint. On the last day everyone will present a program they created for peers and instructor evaluation.

    Honeywell does not include “Competent Person” on the train the trainer certificates. We state you can teach at the user level. However, since train the trainer certificate holders are not Honeywell employees or authorized training contractors, we cannot mandate what training you provide or your audience. That is the responsibility of your employer and the risk they are willing to take.

    You do not walk away with our training program; you walk away with the foundation to build a training program unique to your company’s work applications.

            What is the difference between an Authorized climber and Competent climber in Tower training?

            The difference between Authorized Tower Climber/Rescue and Competent Tower Climber/Rescue is the amount of climbing experience you have.

            Competent Tower Climber participants must hold a current certificate and have 90-days climbing experience. If you are a new climber without previous training,  then you would need Authorized Tower Climber.
