Course description

Working at Height


There may be instances you have to work at height. Unless there are safety measures in place, working at height can cause hazards and accidents. If you want to further your understanding of the measures and protocols you need to implement, Working at Height is a great course to get started on. Falling from height can cause serious injury and even lead to death. This is a risk in the construction and maintenance industry particularly if you have to scale high buildings. This course will focus on how to carry out your duties at height safely and responsibly while adhering to the proper protocols and legislation. The Work at Height Regulations 2005 covers health and safety legislations. These regulations should be understood by employees and the employers alike to assess risks, controls and minimise incidents and hazards from working at height.

Working at Height features practical steps and guidance to assist the company or organisation on how to undertake the risk assessment of working at height, manage such risks, learn to access equipment at height safely and minimise the risks of falling from height for employees working in risky situations. This is a RoSPA approved course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate in the construction and maintenance sectors.
