WORKING AT HEIGHTS
WE1002 WORKING AT HEIGHTS $900
Two-day training course designed around the specific requirements of the wind industry, this ENSA work and rescue at height training course delivers the foundation training for technicians who work at height within construction or general industry on wind turbines. During the course, students are taught the dangers of working at height on a wind turbine and provided with the essential underpinning knowledge required to work safely within this environment. Training covers use of personal protective equipment for working safely at height and fall rescue equipment for personal escape or casualty rescue requirements. Training also demonstrates appropriate decision making when addressing fall hazards through the adoption of preventative safety culture. ENSA Training within Fall Protection, Safe Access & Rescue for wind turbine technicians covers Type 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the four types of rescue defined by the Work at Height Safety Association (WAHSA): 1. Lowering a remote casualty 2. Raising a remote casualty 3. Self-evacuation by descent 4. Rescuing another in descent. The training also develops team rescue strategies, procedures and protocol essential to implementation of a successful rescue. Training Compliance – OSHA 1926 Subpart M & 1910 Subpart D Regulations, ANSI Z359 Standards, GWO-BST Version 7.
CONFINED SPACE ENTRY & RESCUE
CSER1002 CONFINED SPACE ENTRY AND RESCUE (WIND TURBINE) $900
Two-day training course designed to address the challenges of confined spaces within wind turbines. This course caters specifically to the confined space entry and rescue requirements for operating in both permit required and restricted spaces. When available, the training will cover the written specific confined space entry program, turbine specific hazard assessments, entry permits and safe work procedures. Prerequisite: WE1002 or equivalent. Training Compliance – OSHA 1910.146, OSHA 1926.1203, ANSI Z359
TRAUMA AT HEIGHT
TH1001 TRAUMA AT HEIGHT (TOWERS & WIND TURBINES) $475
One-day training course (may be 10 hrs.) which is required for personnel who are expected to respond to incidences of serious traumatic injuries and medical emergencies at height that could possibly occur in wind turbines. It is designed around specific requirements and exposures particular to wind turbines and other work at height structures where working in confinement is a requirement. It affirms through practical assessment and problem-solving exercises, the capability of participants to safely assess an emergency, communicate the need for additional resources, provide needed care for life threatening conditions, and effectively manage victim movement to the ground when necessary. This is an enhancement of the standard American or Canadian Red Cross certification (or other acceptable curriculums) and will prepare students to apply information from previous first aid and CPR/AED training to emergency situations that involve victim care at heights. This is particularly important when responding emergency medical services may be delayed by long travel distances, challenging terrain, and limited by lack of training to provide advanced medical care in elevated work spaces. Prerequisite: WE1002 or equivalent. Training Compliance: American and Canadian Red Cross Standard (or equivalent), 40 CFR 1910.151, ANSI Z490.1-2009, ANSI Z359 Standards
