Managing Work at Height

This course is of One Day Duration

This is a unique course designed for supervisors, managers and those people who control the way in which work at height is to be carried out. It teaches the fundamentals of Safe Systems of Work @ Height, following HSE guidance and the Hierarchy of Control.

Choosing the most suitable height work equipment is a legal requirement and of vital importance in keeping workers safe at height, this is covered in great detail as in our opinion this is the most important duty of a Manager/Supervisor of work @ height applications, an area we feel does not get the attention it should, this very often leads to foreseeable and preventable harm, and in some cases tragically death.

Full Inspection checklist is provided for use after the training.

Our many Clients in the Construction Industry find this training of great benefit to their site managers.


Rescue from Height (GOTCHA)

This unique course has been developed to assist our clients to ensure adequate plans have been developed to ensure height workers who rely on fall arrest measures for protection can be rescued swiftly in the event of a fall occurring, and the faller is left in suspension.                                                                          Legally these rescue plans are required whenever; a fall into a free space, where the faller has no means of self-rescue, or is likely to be knocked unconscious, by hitting an unavoidable obstruction below the working position.

In our opinion as Height Work Safety Advisors this is the most important factor that in our experience, never gets the consideration it deserves. It could well be the difference between rescuing a casualty – or – recovering a fatality!

Let’s all ensure height workers who rely on PFPE understand fully how to operate a Tele-pole Rescue Kit such as “Gotcha” (this is only one of many commercially available rescue kits). We can provide this life saving training on any available kit.
