Why is height training important?
It is hazardous to work at height and often unavoidable. Proper working with heights course program and equipment are necessary to safely work at height. This is not only for the construction industry. One common misconception about work at height is the worker who has been suspended hundreds of feet high, holding a safety harness. However, HS (G 33 Government working at Height Regulation) states that anyone working at an elevated level above the ground is considered to be working at height. We can offer the training you need to help reduce risk and give you greater peace of mind, whether that’s on a ladder or mobile platform.
Workers who aren’t trained at the right level or if they don’t get their training updated regularly have a higher risk of serious injuries that could prove to be life-threatening. We assess the needs of each worker and provide appropriate training. This creates a safer environment for workers, reducing risks and providing greater peace of mind to the building owner.
Who should go?
Anyone who works at heights is eligible to take our training on working in heights. Managers, supervisors, and anyone who is responsible for employees working at height should all take part in the training. Teams will be more efficient and safer if they are aware of the legalities, risks, and benefits associated with working at height.
