Does your facility's "Rescue plan" meet the requirements?
OSHA requires all employers who have workers working in a fall protection system to have a "Rescue plan".
This class along with the Petzl JAG SYSTEM (Rescue KIt) is a sure fire way to feel good about your plans capabilities.
This course is designed to introduce the concepts of using the Petzl JAG SYSTEM™ (Rescue Kit), the CMC Sureclip device, and performing basic skill drills.
