The HSE estimate that about half of all fatalities are attributed to work at height. When relying on personal fall protection it is essential that it is in good condition and used correctly. The Work at Height Regulations state that a personal fall protection system shall be used only if the user and a sufficient number of available persons have received adequate training specific to the associated tasks, including rescue procedures.

This course will familiarise delegates with the correct and safe use of harnesses, lanyards and anchor points for fall prevention and fall protection. The course will give attendees an awareness of hazards associated with working at height and effective control measures. Basic awareness training regarding emergency procedures will also be provided. This does not include design of rescue plans or practical training in rescue.

Practical Elements: Delegates will learn how to put on and safely adjust a harness and clip into an anchorage point. No practice at height will be carried out.

Course Duration 

This course takes place over half a day.

Who should attend? 

This course is aimed at those working in lower risk working at height environments where access is straightforward and anchors are easily identifiable. Potentially this could be maintenance, manufacturing or factory workers who are working at height and suitable anchorage points are already in place. Managers, business owners and purchasers of PPE may also find this course useful.
