Falls are the number one cause of injuries in workplaces across Canada, we teamed up with the good people at Honeywell Canada to offer a free webinar series on fall protection education.

We call the series A Complete Education of Fall Protection and you can watch the whole series here.

The course is led by Jennifer Abraham. She’s Honeywell Canada’s training manager. She’s been training people in industrial safety for over a decade and before that worked as an HSE coordinator in the oil and gas industry.

Use this course to save $850: Jennifer has designed these courses to be the equivalent of a Qualified Person* training course. Anyone who watches the entire series and passes each quiz module can use this as a training credit to take Jennifer’s Qualified Inspector of Fall Protection Equipment program.

*Note: While the information is equivalent to the Qualified Person training course, individuals who complete the entire series will not receive a Qualified Person certificate.
