Course details:

People that need to work on a telecommunications antenna, aerial signal structure, or any other type of steel tower or structure are constantly exposed to the risk of falling. Current protection systems are highly specialized and can ensure worker safety, but that’s just one part of the equation. Because of how difficult it is for rescue teams to access structures at a height, workers need to be in a position to take charge of a fall or dizziness victim and bring them back to the ground in a safe manner. Tower rescue training has a practical focus. The equipment used is simple and provides a high level of passive safety. The techniques we use comply with NFPA standard requirements.
