Work at Height Rescue Training


Introduction:
Work at Height is the main cause of workplace fatalities. With the introduction of the Work at Height Regulations 2005, it is important that all employers and duty holders ensure that the work is planned, supervised and carried out safely. An essential part of the planning process must also include arrangements for emergencies and rescue in the event of a fall. Rescue is the responsibility of the employer/duty holder and not the emergency services.
Certification is valid for 5 years.

Course aim:
To provide training and knowledge in the safe and correct use of rescue equipment, to enable the swift recovery of an incapacitated worker in a Fall Arrest situation.

Who the course is aimed at:
The course is ideal for employers, managers, supervisors and employees who may be able to offer a first response to a colleague who is in need of assistance at height whilst working on site.
