Online Fall Protection Course

Posted on by


This online course is appropriate for the classroom portion of Fall Protection Authorized training. It is intended for people who will be exposed to fall hazards but will not select equipment, anchor points, or make decisions about what methods of fall protection should be used. The course explains the difference between the authorized person and the competent person, components of fall protection systems, the inspection process, and the safe use and maintenance of fall protection equipment. Essential fall protection concepts such as free fall distance, fall clearance distance, the hazards of using fall arrest equipment, and the need for rescue planning are also covered.

The first part of this course is Fall Protection Awareness, so there is no need to take that course separately.

This course is not competent person training.

Hydrogen Sulfide Online Awareness Training

Posted on by


iWorkWise developed this computer-based awareness level training to introduce workers to the dangers of hydrogen sulfide.

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a colorless gas with a strong odor of rotten eggs. It is extremely flammable and highly toxic. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) hydrogen sulfide is one of the leading causes of workplace gas inhalation deaths in the United States. At high levels, poisoning can be swift and deadly with little warning. All workers that could encounter hydrogen sulfide must be trained to recognize its hazards.

Hazard Communication Online Training

Posted on by

iWorkWise has produced this online training as an introduction to hazard communication, hazards that chemicals may present, and how to use Safety Data Sheets and labels to get information about chemicals in the workplace.

Employees have the right to know about chemicals in their workplace and how those chemicals may be harmful. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that all employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces have labels and safety data sheets for their exposed workers, inform them about the chemical hazards, and train them to handle the chemicals appropriately.

Confined Space Awareness Course

Posted on by

iWorkWise has produced a confined space awareness level course to provide an introduction to the hazards of confined spaces. Most workers who die in confined spaces do so because they don’t recognize or control the hazards. An awareness level person needs to be able to recognize a confined space when they see one, understand the potential dangers, and know what to do when they encounter a confined space.

There is one death in a confined space every four days.
