Working At Height Awareness

Aim of the course

According to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) Working at Height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. Ensuring you select the correct equipment to do the work at height is very important and learning how to use that equipment effectively and safely is even more important.

This course has been designed to do exactly that, teach the delegate how to perform a task using the correct equipment and using it in the correct manner. Because Working at Height is considered as any work on, below or above ground level, it is important that this course enables the delegates to be able to perform their tasks in hand safely.
