Rescue I Training: Construction
The Rescue I Training curriculum covers the principles of evacuation, self-rescue, and assisted rescue for the construction industry. Students will learn the multiple applications of self-rescue and assisted rescue equipment. The greater portion of the class is held on an elevated structure. After becoming comfortable with the simple processes used with the equipment, the students will perform and participate in several simulated rescue scenarios.
These exercises will include a variety of real-life situations:
- Access victim
- Remote victim
- Other challenging drills
Each student must have appropriate PPE, including a full body harness, fall arrest lanyard and any personal fall protection devices normally used. Students should be prepared to climb an actual structure several times each day.
Course Duration: 2 or 3 days (dependent upon on the rescue equipment)
Class Size: 6 students per instructor
Tech Safety Lines’ rescue training programs meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI Z359.2-2017 standards for safety.

“Instructors were very knowledgeable. They were able to transmit the info to us in a very real and interesting way. They never discussed or wasted time on areas that did not pertain to us. They asked for feedback as we progressed on how and what would be helpful.”
-Sam Moses, Jr., Balfour Beatty U.S.
“With over ten years in renewables, I can say this was the best instruction by any company. They made sure that you were aware of how to use the equipment. That you would be able to use it if and when the time comes. Not just going through the motions and handing out a certificate. The classroom instruction was taught very well, and easy to follow and understand. Then we were trained using real world scenarios.”
– David Webb, Nordex
“Our instructor was extremely knowledgeable and provided a high level expertise to our training environment. He was able to instill confidence in our rescue ability through well delivered demonstrations and fully involved hands on training. His professionalism and manner created an environment that was both engaging and fun. We will certainly have him back to do more courses in the future. Thank you!”
