Working Safely at Height

This 1 day course will provide delegates with an understanding of the Work at Height (WAH) Regulations 2005 in relation to the selection of appropriate work at height/access equipment, and their safe use in theoretical situations relating to the delegates undertakings. The course syllabus addresses the legal requirements placed upon employers and employees alike which will include: Avoidance of WAH, and the correct selection and use of existing and temporary workplaces, mobile access equipment and ladders, hop-ups, podiums etc.

The course syllabus provides an overview and awareness of Personal Fall Protection Equipment (PFPE) such as harnesses and lanyards etc. but does NOT provide the delegate with enough in-depth information on selection use and inspection of these items in order to provide competency. This issue is addressed in a PFPE (Harness) specific half day package which could be delivered following the successful completion of this course.

Delegates will complete a multiple choice theory assessment and a practical assessment.
