This EXTENSIVE Hands-On course will cover the BuckSqueeze and SuperSqueeze Pole Climbing Fall Restraint System (any other vendor fall restraint systems can be covered). This course is designed for the Communications and Power Energy Industry, experienced climbers only. Attendees MUST have prior pole climbing training and experience. This course is not for first time climbers. First time climbers need to attend our Hands-On Pole Climbing 3-day course before attending this course or equivalent. Today's installer and repairers (lineworkers) is listed as the eight most hazardous occupation in the US as reported by the Bureau of labor statistics (BLS). With approximately 600+ serious injuries and over 100+ deaths estimated annually by OSHA. This is a series issue that Lineworkers/Installers face everyday and companies are responsible for. With more work being done from Ariel lifts trucks, lineworkers/Climbers are climbing less frequently then in the past. As a result, Lineworkers/Climbers are not climbing enough to maintain adequate skills levels and are now more susceptible to falls that can be fatal. Communication and Utility companies around across the US and Internationally have recognized and are now addressing this issue by providing fall restraint systems and aggressive training to equip their lineworkers/Climbers and prevent any injuries, fatalities and claims in the future. This course is designed to train the lineworkers/climbers fall protection on wood poles from the ground, to the elevated work position, and back to the ground. The BuckSqueeze/Supersqueeze requires the climber to hitchhike up and down the pole utilizing the cross over strap and the paddle tensioner. If the climber starts to fall, the strap squeezes the pole, securing the climber and preventing a fall. While climbing over obstructions, the climber would secure a lanyard prior to removing the BuckSqueeze/Supersqueeze. The BuckSqueeze/Supersqueeze is easy to adjust to accommodate the size of the pole. The fact that a lineworkers/Climbers can fall from a structure and risk serious injury and possibly death, at a time when products, technology and resources are readily available to prevent it, is unacceptable... We are here to properly train staff to use this fall restraint system and give them the confidence they need to climber safely.
