Aerial Rescue September 19-20, 2019

  • Aerial Rescue

    This course is designed to educate tree climbers in the most likely scenarios where they may have to respond to an emergency while working at height. This course focuses on the importance of Emergency Action Planning (EAP) and emergency preparedness protocols in a high angle environment. The importance of self-rescue strategies and methods to minimize risk exposure to co-workers is discussed and demonstrated. Systems designed to facilitate an efficient and practical rescue are described, demonstrated and practiced by participants. Attendees are trained and educated in the current injury and fatality statistics common to tree work and specific rescue techniques developed as a result of these statistics are trained and practiced throughout the course. Physics and engineering concepts such as reaction force, potential energy, and vectors associated with work at height and various fall protection systems are described and demonstrated to assessed by participants.
    Through hands-on rescue opportunities and practice, participants will learn the following skills:
    • Risk Assessment Hierarchy of Controls & PPE
    • Fall Protection Types, Systems, Fall Protection OSHA & ANSI
    • Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) Scene Management & First Aid
