Evacuation & Self-Rescue Training: Utility

Linemen working in elevated environments such as a bucket truck or transmission tower will learn how to evacuate and to perform a true self-rescue after a fall.

The Evacuation & Self-Rescue Training course concentrates on the various usages of the SRK-15®  (CE and ANSI certified Kit) and the Arc Flash StepWise Lanyard. Each linemen will learn to inspect and operate the dual-brake descender within the self-rescue kit, as well as adjust the kit to his or her own body-weight in order to keep the kit event-ready in case of an emergency.

Each student must have appropriate PPE, including a full body harness, dual leg lanyard and any personal fall protection devices normally used. Students should be prepared to climb an actual structure several times.

Course Duration: 1 day 

Class Size: Up to 10 students

All TSL rescue training programs meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI safety standards.
