The training shall include the following areas, as applicable:

  • The nature of any electrical hazards, fall hazards and falling object hazards in the work area;
  • The correct procedures for dealing with electrical hazards and for erecting, maintaining, and disassembling the fall protection systems and falling object protection systems being used;
