The central purpose of this article focuses on the analysis of the differential impact of training in accident risk prevention and safety promotion with people exposed to work at heights with traditional training and experiential learning methods. Methodologically, a quasi-experimental study was designed with two experimental and control groups. Procedurally, the workers in the two groups were previously assigned, highlighting that they received the same thematic training units for work at height, specifically with the procedure for work on telescopic ladders, based on the ANSI Z359.1 protocol against the Fall Protection System (SPCC); with the only difference corresponding to the training method (Traditional vs. Experiential Learning). The results allow us to identify significant differences in the level of learning and the performance of the workers, with the performance of the experimental group exposed to the experiential learning method being higher. From the quantitative and qualitative analysis of the findings derived from the study, the need and opportunity to enrich the training processes with the pedagogical component of experiential learning is evident, since it generates a higher level of involvement in the approach to the contents and the specialized training activities that have a higher level of interactivity and simulation of real conditions, positively influencing the development of risk prevention skills and promotion of safety in the working conditions of workers dedicated to one of the most frequently used modalities. accident risk.
