The Raytheon Fall Protection Training Center of Excellence provides a "One RTN" training in the art and science of fall protection.  Employees from across RTN are trained and learn how to train, working at heights.  They learn how to safely rappel from platforms and how to tie off to structures and navigate heights in preventing the leading cause of fatalities in the U.S. according to OSHA. RTN employees across the globe are exposed to work requirements which demand safe access through personal fall arrest systems.  Fall exposures exist and must be addressed through the best equipment in the hands of well-trained employees.
