Falls are a leading cause of lost time incidents. Fall protection is not only critical, but a regulatory requirement when working at heights over 10 ft. Fall hazards need to be properly assessed and the appropriate controls selected based on WorkSafe BC’s hierarchy of controls. This includes ensuring personal protective equipment is in good working order. ORCA Health and Safety can ensure your workers are protected from falls.
ORCA services include:
- Fall protection assessments
- Fall protection plans (required when working at heights greater than 25 ft.)
- Equipment inspections
- Design consultation
Instructor provoked discussion and was very detailed. Examples were relevant and equipment used as props was great to see.
Peter was very informative and very knowledgeable. Made it easy to understand. Made the course fun and was one of the better courses I have taken. Instructor kept a very good pace and flow to the course.
I’m very new to the industry. As a sawmill worker, this course empowered me. A lot of new information for me on fall protection.
Hoisting class participants while in their harnesses is a very helpful exercise to demonstrate what it feels like to be suspended in a harness. Thanks for taking the time to do this.
I was really impressed with the level of knowledge. It answered many questions I had for fall protection.
Great instruction, great handouts, well informed. Thanks Peter!
This was a great course and Peter did really well to explain the material to me as this is my first run through a fall protection course. Thanks Peter.
Course was awesome. Peter is very knowledgeable, educational and informative. Great selection of fall protection equipment for hands on teaching.
Great content, excellent instructors.” Will continue to always use ORCA Health and Safety for our safety courses.
