Working At Height
WORKING AT HEIGHT SAFETY TRAINING COURSES
Almost a third of all workplace fatalities involve falls from high places – so safety training is essential for regulatory compliance and your own duty of care to anyone working at height. It’s most effective delivered in your real environment, with your own equipment.
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 were a response to reduce the accident toll, and the HSE have made height safety a priority ever since. You need risk-assessed practices, the right equipment, safe rescue procedures and – crucially – people who are properly trained to use it all.
Height safety training – delivered at height
Wherever possible, we’ll deliver practical elements of your course in the real environment where candidates will be working. We’ve trained people on factory roofs, up ferry masts, and on real lifeline equipment.
This is not just theory, or learning how to use similar gear. It’s showing exactly where and how to connect and use your own safety equipment, and how to do the real job safely, every day.
- Working at height (1-day course)
A practical and theoretical course, including a written exam. Candidates learn about relevant legislation and best practice, planning work safely, and selecting, inspecting and using the right equipment. Each candidate receives formal certification, that’s valid for three years.
- Ladder user (half-day course)
Ladders are among the most common factors in serious workplace accidents. A simple, half-day course, showing proper technique and the reasons for it, can have a significant impact on your risk profile.
- Ladder inspector (half-day course)
Lives depend on your ladders being in a safe condition – but signs of damage and wear are easy to miss. This course ensures anyone inspecting a ladder knows exactly what to look for. It can be combined with our ladder user training, to give a full-day user-inspector course.
- Safety harness / fall-arrest equipment (half-day course)
Even the best protective equipment is only effective if your employees use it correctly. This course – provided by qualified trainers who have studied extensively with leading manufacturers – is tailored to your own equipment, workplace, and risks.
We can train up to eight people at a time, on your site. No prior knowledge, experience or training are needed, but candidates should be physically and mentally capable of working at height. For obvious reasons, these courses aren’t suitable for anyone suffering with vertigo, sudden blackouts, or similar conditions.
