Evacuation & Self-Rescue Training: Aerial Lift/Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP)

Companies should have a rescue plan for all of their workers at height. In this one day work at height training course, workers in aerial lifts/Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP) will learn how to evacuate and to perform a true self-rescue even after a fall. The Evacuation & Self-Rescue Training course concentrates on the various usages of the SRK-15®  (CE & ANSI certified Kit) and the StepWise Lanyard. Each student will learn to inspect and operate the dual-brake personal 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.

Course Duration: 1 day 

Class Size: maximum 12 students

All Tech Safety Lines’ rescue training programs meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI safety standards.

The majority of this class is held on an elevated structure. After becoming comfortable with the simple processes used with the SRK-15®, students will perform and participate in several simulated escape and rescue scenarios. Each student is required to have a full body harness, helmet, gloves, eye protection, and appropriate clothing and footwear.
