With the Work at Height Regulations 2005 now established and the removal of the ‘two metre rule’, working at height has become a somewhat contentious issue in some quarters. The scope of work at height has been broadened across all industry sectors, as has the requirement to undertake a suitable and sufficient risk assessment on all work undertaken where there is a risk of injury as a result of a fall from height.
This training course is for employees and operatives who are required to work at height, which may include the use of access equipment and aimed at enabling those responsible for such work to understand what is required when carrying out such an assessment, i.e. legislative requirements and best practice.
- Legal background, including requirements of the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
- Work at height risk assessment.
- Use of work equipment including ladders, mobile elevated work platforms, and temporary and fixed scaffold structures.
- Fall arrest equipment, harness use and rope work.
- Emergency procedures.
