An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Fall Protection Program
Injuries from falls are a leading occupational injury. It is the intent of Replace with Company Name to provide maximum protection to its staff in the prevention of falls. Known fall hazards will be identified, inspected and fall protection provided to ensure the safety of personnel. Engineering controls, administrative procedures and the use of personal protective equipment will be utilized. This Fall Protection Program must be followed where personnel can possibly fall at a temporary or permanent work area: (a) a vertical distance of 3 metres or more, (b) a vertical distance of less than 3 metres if there is an unusual possibility of injury, or (c) into or onto a hazardous substance or object, or through an opening in a work surface. 
Training in fall protection must be obtained prior to working where potential for a fall exists. This training will be conducted by an authorized training resource. Training will consist of learning to identify fall hazards, minimize fall hazards, and the function, use, inspection, and maintenance of personal fall arrest systems (PFAS) and other restraint equipment. Trainees will also be taught how to identify and inspect anchor points, substantial members of the building structure, or securely rigged lines, which will safely suspend the worker in case of fall. Replace with Company Name shall ensure that a worker is trained in the safe use of the fall protection system before allowing the worker to work in an area where a fall protection system must be used.
The training must include the following:
(a) a review of current Alberta legislation pertaining to fall protection;
(b) an understanding of what a fall protection plan is;
(c) fall protection methods a worker is required to use at a work site;
(d) identification of fall hazards;
(e) assessment and selection of specific anchors that the worker may use;
(f) instructions for the correct use of connecting hardware;
