Certificate in Managed Fall Protection
All ASSP certificate programs are designed so professionals can take a series of courses related to certain occupational safety and health (OSH) topics or concepts, then master those areas and gain expertise. As falls continue to be leading cause of on-the-job injuries and fatalities, expertise in managed fall protection can be critically important. This program covers the ANSI/ASSP Z359 Fall Protection Code in depth, as well as other relevant fall protection issues.
