Work at Height Awareness and Ladder Safety & Inspection Combined Trainer Led Course
The Work at Height Regulations (2005) are very important, as falls from a height account for more deaths every year in the workplace than any other single issue. Safe working at height training is an essential for anyone where there may be a risk of harm or injury from a fall. Training covers essential information on managing and carrying out work at height, including the selection of appropriate access equipment, the hierarchy of risk controls, identification of danger areas and rescue requirements.
Ladders appear simple and many operators think common sense will get them by. However, statistically the inappropriate or incorrect use of ladders and stepladders have contributed annually to many deaths and injuries in the UK.
The course will identify the relevance and implications of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 so that the individual can comply with their duties, whether planning, controlling or conducting work tasks at height.
This training session is intended as the basic foundation for working safely at height. Course delegates will be provided with the basic information required of anyone tasked with or affected by working at height to ensure safety in the workplace.
It does not cover any specific skills required to carry out a work task or to use specialist height safety equipment; these skills are dealt with by other training sessions. However, candidates will gain a thorough knowledge of all possible methods of controlling the potential fall from height.
The course is normally conducted by the use of visual presentation, theoretical illustrations, practical demonstrations and/or participation.
