TH2001: Trauma at Height

TH2001 is designed for personnel who are expected to respond to incidences of serious traumatic injuries and medical emergencies that could occur while working at height in wind turbines. This course is aimed at the specific requirements and exposures particular to wind turbines and other work at height structures where working in confinement is a requirement. Through practical assessment and problem-solving exercises, participants will learn and demonstrate how to safety assess an emergency situation, communicate the need for additional resources, provide needed care for life threatening conditions, and effectively manage victim movement to the ground, when necessary.

The exercises presented in this course are a combination of classroom discussion and demonstration scenarios, major equipment application scenarios done in controlled surroundings, and advanced skill application scenarios performed at height in multiple levels of wind turbines. Each scenario evaluates site safety and personal safety considerations, a detailed assessment of injuries or illness, and patient movement considerations. TH2001 is also employed within the B31005 Bundled 3 program.

General Disclaimer

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.
