Working at height training

Working at Height training

Understand your obligations under the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and how to deliver safer practices for all your colleagues and employees with this 100% online working at height training.

Working at height training, whether it be on platforms, ladders, scaffolds, stages or alongside deep trenches, carries with it inherent dangers.

By completing this awareness course, you will develop an overall awareness of some of the key risks and safety issues – and how to mitigate and reduce them.

This course is one of a range of online workplace safety courses that we offer.

Is this the right Working at Height training for you?

Working at Height training is designed for business owners, managers and supervisors whose employees regularly work at height.

It is also ideal for the individual employees and teams who work at height.

However, those who work at height are also likely to need further practical training to fully understand the best practices that will ensure their ongoing safety.

Working at Height training: what is covered?

Students enrolling on this Working at Height training course will complete 11 modules during their study programme.

Following an introduction to working at height, the next four modules will take a broad look at the inherent dangers of working at height (“it’s not how far you climb, but how far you can fall”) and the regulations surrounding such activity.

Students will also develop a fuller understanding of the legal responsibilities of both duty holders and employers.

Module six covers the hierarchy of control, and how it helps to minimise risk and enhance safe working practices.

The importance of avoiding working at height is covered next, alongside how to prevent the risk of falls and minimise the consequences of any such falls.

Finally, students will cover risk assessment, getting some of the theoretical knowledge needed to conduct thorough risk assessments, before an overall course summary completes the training.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
