Safety Training - the essence of good safety management

Half-Day Safe Working at Heights for Operatives

A person falling from height is the single largest cause of workplace fatalities.

The Work at Height Regulations stipulate that any person performing any activity that involves work at height must be competent to do so. This half-day course is intended for operatives whose work could involve exposure to a fall from height, whether in construction, maintenance, cleaning or access.

Your employees must be able to understand the definition of work at height; and recognise the legal and moral roles and responsibilities owed to themselves, their families and work colleagues when they might be required to working at height.

They should be able to recognise what are considered to be suitable control measures to prevent falls from height and understand the importance of safe access and egress, safe places of work and the need for safe systems of work

During this course your employees will learn about the legal requirements placed on employers and employee duties. We will address the need for and the importance of Risk Assessments and the subsequent selection and use of appropriate work equipment to include:

Collective and Individual Fall Protection Systems, Types of scaffolds, Mobile Access Towers, MEWPS, Ladders and Stepladders, When to use the use Fall Protection Equipment and Protecting the Public when working at height.
