Aquatic Health and Safety Awareness: Fall Protection Plan and Systems Implementation

Date: Thursday May 30, 2024
Time: 11:00-12:00
Location: Online

The Aquatics Health and Safety Awareness campaign is designed to raise awareness of occupational health and safety concerns for those working in and around aquatic facilities, and to provide free and accessible resources to workers (including vulnerable/new/young workers), supervisors, pool facility operators, and organizations. The webinars are no cost, open to all attendees, and will be recorded and made available following the event.

This 45-minute webinar is presented by a fall protection engineering expert that will review the types of system in a fall protection plan, discuss the limitations of each system, and how to address the limitations to support building and implementing an effective fall protection plan. This discussion includes understanding the requirements of anchoring points, and providing examples of anchors commonly found in the aquatic pool working environment. Strategies of how to select fall protection systems will be presented including questions to ask the equipment manufacturer and the contractor installing the anchor points, prior to purchasing the equipment or service.

Understanding the elements to develop an effective fall protection plan and implementing it, is vital to protecting workers at fall hazards.

Following the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of our subject matter expert.

  • Overview of parts a fall protection plan.
  • Know the parts of a fall protection system.
  • Classification of system limitations in: guardrails, travel restraint, fall arrest, and control zones.

  • Formulate questions to ask manufactures or training providers prior to purchasing services or equipment.
