SMITHFIELD, R.I. — Honeywell Safety Products announced the 2014 open enrollment schedule, featuring Miller fall prevention and protection training. This comprehensive offering of fall prevention and protection classes is part of the Honeywell Safety Institute, an initiative aimed at providing educational tools, resources and training programs that inspire workers to implement good safety practices in industries around the globe.
The 2014 open enrollment schedule includes courses in more than 30 cities throughout the United States and Canada, as well as courses at state-of-the-art Honeywell training facilities in Franklin, Pa., and Houston, which feature catwalks, climbing towers, confined space simulators, wind simulators and other equipment to protect from hazardous environments in a range of industries.
“Training is an integral part of our Total Solution in fall protection, since no fall protection equipment — regardless of how effective — can save an employee who is not trained in its use. To meet this crucial requirement, Miller Training provides the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a safer, more productive work environment,” said Lisa Burns, U.S. technical training and operations manager, Honeywell Safety Products.
All open enrollment training courses feature experienced instructors, live demonstrations and hands-on training. Course goals include enabling employees working at heights to recognize fall hazards, evaluate the risk posed by each hazard, and control the hazard through preventive or protective measures. The sessions are further customized by location to address site-specific variables and performance requirements of fall prevention and protection.
