Fall Arrest Rescue Training
Who is this course for?
The winch rescue course is aimed at anyone whose job requires them to work at height, and which potentially puts them and co-workers at risk of falling, and are therefore required to be competent to effect rescue of a co-worker which may require both raising or lowering as part of
Is the winch system right for you?
The winch system allows the safe recovery of a fallen unconscious/ conscious person through raising or lowering of the casualty, this provides multiple options based on where the fall occurred and the available access and onsite restrictions.
The winch only requires one person to operate in any mode to effect a rescue. The system is simple to use and fast to set up and operate.
What are the objectives of the course
This course is very hands on, we don't just talk, we do. What does that mean? We actually rescue people on the course, by physically going through the process, at height over the edge of the build recovering people. The delegates all have to complete real rescues of each other (we also provide a rescue dummy if preferred).
This is done in a very safe controlled environment with all the necessary back-up systems for maximum safety and reassurance. But when it comes down to it, when we are not with you, you need to be competent to carry out these rescue procedures, and you can only really achieve this through live practice in your work. But be reassured we don't leave until we feel happy your happy, competent and safe.
Upon successful completion of the course, we guarantee delegates will be able to competently and safely handle the rescue of a conscious casualty using the rescue step (personal relief system) and the rescue ladder system, with the main focus being able to facilitate the recovery of an unconscious casualty by either raising to the working floor or lowering to a lower floor or ground level using the winch system.
