Expert height safety trainer providing theory to operatives during level 1 height safety training

01 / THEORY PHASE

Skyrocket your height safety knowledge.

The course begins by establishing a general awareness of the dangers of working at height and takes you on a journey through the methods, practices and equipment that together form your height access solution. We'll discuss what restraint, fall-arrest and work positioning mean and get you fully trained in the use of height safety harnesses, adjustable restraint and intermediate devices such as inertia reels, lanyards, lifelines, connectors and anchorage. You’ll then explore the fatal effects of suspension intolerance, take a brief look at rescue, discover how to perform pre-use equipment inspections and test-drive the latest tethering solutions for preventing dropped tools.
