Working At Height Training Course

Entry Requirements:

The candidates don’t need to have any prior qualifications to be able to take the working at height award.

Location:

Our state of the art training centre in Pyle, Bridgend, South Wales
three day first aid course bridgend
In 2005/06 falls from height accounted for 46 fatal accidents at work and around 3350 major injuries. They remain the single biggest cause of workplace deaths and one of the main causes of major injury.

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 applies to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury. They place duties on employers, the self-employed, and any person who controls the work of others (eg facilities managers or building owners who may contract others to work at height) to ensure that everyone involved in the work is competent (or, if being trained, is supervised by a competent person). This includes involvement in organisation, planning, supervision, and the supply and maintenance of equipment.

Where other precautions do not entirely eliminate the risk of a fall occurring, you must (as far as it is reasonably practicable to do so) train those who will be working at height how to avoid falling, and how to avoid or minimise injury to themselves should they fall.

A place is 'at height' if a person could be injured falling from it, even if it is at or below ground level.

Our Working at Height training course will help you be compliant with these Work at Height Regulations by giving you the knowledge to be able to consider the risks associated with working at height, plan ahead using risk assessments and follow safe procedures while undertaking work.

On successful completion of course candidates will be awarded with a Certificate of Attendance.
