Evacuation & Self-Rescue Training: Telecommunications
The Evacuation & Self-Rescue Training course concentrates on the various usages of the SRK-11® (ANSI certified Kit) or SRK-15® (CE certified Kit), for Evacuation and Self-Rescue on structures such as cellular towers, monopoles, broadcast towers, water tanks, silos and rooftops. Each student will learn to inspect and operate the dual-brake descender, 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 during the day.
Course Duration: 1 day
Class Size: Maximum 6 students per instructor
TSL’s rescue training programs meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI standards.
