Personal protective equipment against falls training (PPE)

Everyone who works regularly or occasionally at a height or in areas with a risk of falling, should be instructed in the use of Personal Protective Equipment against falls (PPE) in accordance with the German Employer’s Liability Insurance Association standards and regulations (BGR 198/199).
This training should be conducted before the first practice (application) as well as in a continuous practice at least once a year. 
A very important component of this training is the opportunity to train and demonstrate several rescue scenarios, so that the proper and appropriate use of the PPE leads to taking quick and safe actions in the case of an emergency, and since the motionless hanging in the harness can lead to serious injury, or even death.

Our two-day training and annual refresher courses annual refresher courses are held in our training center in Berlin which is perfectly heated during cold days! 
We can gladly adapt the training to your company and employees individual needs and require-ments upon request.

As a proof, you will receive a confirmation registration and (if available) a corresponding entry in the security pass.
