Common questions:
  1. Is there a requirement by law to have a certificate of fall protection training?
    – No, there’s not an expressly written such requirement for fall protection, but there’s clear demands (Work Environment Act and in the provisions about Systematic Enviroment Work) that the employer must ensure that the employee have appropriate training – fall risks are that serious you cannot have fall risks without written plans and precautions.  The management of severe risks must be in written form.
