Working at Height Online Course
Our Working at Height Training course will provide the user the knowledge required to safely work at a height whether that be at home or in a work place.
Falls from height is one of three most common causes of fatalities at work. A ‘height’ need not be above the ground, it could be a depth, and falls in excavations or cellars can also be very serious.
This course explains the steps any ‘responsible person’ must undertake if their work schedule requires them, or others, under their control to work at height. This may involve ladders, step ladders or other devices. It is extremely important that correct planning is carried out and risk assessments are completed before any work is undertaken. This is an important course for all who are responsible for work being carried out at height or for those who themselves work at height.
