||In view of the large number of occupational accidents due to falls from heights, a company decided to design a training program on work at heights aimed at safety specialists. Indeed, for selecting the appropriate equipment to be used by workers, safety specialists need to be aware of all existing equipment available on the market as well as their specific characteristics. Several courses are proposed, ranging from eight hours to seven days. They include theoretical aspects and practical exercises in true work situations, enabling safety specialists to get familiarised with the use of equipment. Participants receive a certificate issued by a body accredited by the IRSST.
