Course description

Working at Height Training

Falling from a height is the most common cause of workplace-related injuries, accounting for 28% of accidents and fatalities at work. It’s mandatory that anyone performing workplace activities from a height is aware of the risks and how to use equipment safely and in compliance with the law.

This Working at Height Training Course is particularly beneficial to anyone whose work may involve carrying out tasks from a height. These professions include gutter cleaners, solar panel installers, construction workers, excavators and roof workers.

By the end of the course you’ll understand how to carry out risk assessments, implement strict safety procedures and minimise the risk of height-related falls in the workplace. You’ll also be educated on the correct equipment to use in order to ensure that efficient control measures are in place.

They covered every risk detail so concisely. This helped me a lot for assessing the risk factors at my construction site.
