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

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.
