FP1001-Residential Rooftop Safety

Course Overview

FP1001-RR is a prerequisite requirement to take FP2001-Stormseal.

FP1001-RR is specific to residential roofers operating on both low and steep-slope residential rooftops and
addresses the work at height training and educational needs of the employer and employee whose livelihood depends on being safe. This one-day training focuses on the underpinning knowledge of work at height fall protection and risk mitigation focusing on the need to fully understand, identify, and address the potential hazards associated with the task. Delegates will be instructed upon personal fall protection equipment, fall arrest systems, and the importance of fall protection and rescue planning for residential rooftop environments.

 

All ENSA North America practical training exercises are implemented under a “Skills Based Evolution Process” which the student experiences as a layering approach, whereby a basic foundation is established, and through reaffirmation and confirmation, additional practical skills are applied to effectively demonstrate and apply through hands-on experiences the complexities of work and rescue at height, achieving success through confidence by all who participate.
Reaffirmation through testing is applied with the addition of correction to 100%. This unique philosophy in learning ensures all incorrectly answered test questions are tabled under whole group discussion to ensure maximum retention and understanding by all students. All training programs are structured upon a pass or fail determination criteria and are in accordance with ANSI Z490.1 – 2016 Criteria for accepted practices in safety, health, and environmental training and under ENSA’s ISO 9001-certified quality management system.

Note: Students must be medically and physically fit with a desire to work at heights. The training environment may require the use of specialized access methods such as those employed within suspension and rope access practices. These practices may be utilized as effective safety tools within the delivery of this program. They are not to be considered trained upon within this program.
