LJB Inc. has crossed a major milestone in its goal to assist clients with enhancing their fall protection programs. As of July 2010, LJB has trained more than 500 individuals from 70 different organizations to the level of OSHA competent person.
Each of the competent persons trained by LJB has participated in a comprehensive 40-hour instructor-led course that addresses fall prevention and protection, regulations and standards, personal protective equipment, rescue and job safety analysis. Some of the courses have been held at LJB’s Dayton, Ohio headquarters, while many have been customized and held at clients’ work sites.
“We believe the competent person role is fundamental to a successful fall protection program—so that individuals are empowered to have a positive impact on safety in their workplaces,” said Craig Galecka, leader of LJB’s fall protection training services. “We are proud to have played a role in increasing safety and reducing risk for so many organizations.”
In addition to competent person-level training, the firm also provides qualified person, authorized person, and general awareness fall protection training, as well as system-specific training and refresher courses. This year, LJB also introduced a hybrid online/in-class training course to reduce the time and cost required to become properly trained in fall protection.
LJB competent person fall protection training is available for open enrollment during the weeks of September 27 and December 6, 2010. Please visit LJB University Training for more information or to register for the courses.
