Staff report

West Kentucky Community & Technical College is providing a platform for employers to learn falling protection training though a self-serve website.

Employers can sign up for 15 two-hour online training modules that focus on fall protection for residential and commercial construction sites as well as manufacturing facilities, chemical plants and other places where employees work at heights or areas that are susceptible to falls. The 30 hours of self-serve training is designed to help employers comply with the fall protection standard set by the Kentucky Occupational Safety and Health Administration and to safeguard construction employees.

Modules topics include residential construction-fall protection overview, roofing, personal fall arrest systems, guardrail systems, falling objects protection, stairways, ladders, scaffold capacity, scaffold platform construction, supported scaffolds, suspension scaffolds, scaffold use, access to scaffold and fall protection and requirements for specific types of scaffolds.

The cost for each module is $10 and for all 15 modules is $150. The instruction is available in English and Spanish. To sign up and register, visit wkctcnow.com, pay with Pay Pal, take the modules and corresponding exam any time and then print the completion certificate.
