Tower Rescue Training
METI’s Tower Rescue Training provides you with theoretical training in contemporary tower rescue strategies and gives you hands-on training in our realistic, training facility.
METI’s Tower Rescue Training prepares you to perform rescue of workers who become incapacitated while on a tower.
Over the past 30 years, the growing demand for wireless and broadcast communications has spurred a dramatic increase in communication tower construction and maintenance. In order to erect or maintain communication towers, employees regularly climb towers, using fixed ladders, support structures or step bolts, from 100 feet to heights in excess of 1000 or 2000 feet. Employees climb towers throughout the year, including during inclement weather conditions.
Some of the more frequently encountered hazards include:
The Canada Labour Code (2.18 (1)) states: “No employee shall climb a tower, an antenna or an antenna-supporting structure unless (a) the employer has authorized the employee to do so; (b) the employee has been trained and instructed in a safe method of climbing; and (c) the employer has provided a fall-protection system in accordance with section 12.10.”
