Evacuation & Self-Rescue Training: Aerial Lift

In this one day training course, workers in aerial lifts 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-11® (ANSI compliant Kit) or SRK-15®  (CE certified Kit) and the StepWise Lanyard. Each student 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: maximum 6 students per instructor
