Working aloft classes consist of 4 days of intense training covering how to safely and effectively ascend and descend wooden poles using pole climbing gaffs and associated equipment. Students will learn the "3 Points of Contact" method of climbing both poles and ladders. Students will learn these skills through classroom lecture and hands-on experience with a qualified instructor. Class size is limited to provide maximum student/instructor interaction. Each phase of the student's progress is video taped and then analyzed in the classroom to enhance the training experience. A video taped final exam is provided to the company and a souvenir copy of the learning experience is provided to each student.
Ladder safety is an important and often over looked aspect of the job. Falls from ladders when "trying to get the job done" and soft tissue injuries associated with lifting, carrying, placing and removal/replacement of the ladder from the work vehicle are among most common and costly in the industry.
Classes are conducted at your location using your equipment, providing a cost effective training option for your company.
