Working Near Water Awareness

Essential training for anyone who works over or near water.

Description:

Twenty-four workers die every year by drowning in the United States. Federal safety standards require certain water safety precautions and equipment be in place when workers are operating near or over water in which they can drown. In addition to teaching students about regulatory requirements, this course will also teach students about hazard recognition, drowning, hypothermia, personal flotation devices (life jackets), ring buoys, and more.

This class is targeted for anyone in the general population that works around water. If you are a first responder, you should take our in-person Flood and Swiftwater Rescue classes.

Please note: This online class should be completed in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Pre-Requisite:

None

Certificates and Wallet Cards:

Immediately upon completion of the class, students will be able to download an electronic certificate of training from Elder Technical Rescue Services, LLC. Printed certificates of training and wallet cards issued by the National Association of Safety Professionals (NASP) can be mailed to the student for an additional administrative fee of $40.
