Course Information:

The truth surrounding working at heights is clear; no measurement can answer the question ‘how high is safe enough?’ The fact is that you can drown in a very small amount of water, and just like injuries sustained due to the lack of falls prevention training, all it takes is for an employee to land awkwardly and a life changing injury can be caused.

Therefore, no matter what height the operation – filing documents in an office environment from a kick stool; working ten storeys up on a construction site, or even if your job requires high rope access - if your feet are off ground level, you are classed as working at height and thus need to abide by the Work at Height Regulations. Infact a place is ‘at height’ if a person could be injured falling from it, even if it is at or below ground level. To adopt the good practices advocated by the Work at Height Regulations, you and your workforce are in need of Falls Prevention training.

It should be no surprise that nearly a quarter of all workplace injuries result from such incidents and that Falls Prevention training is a step in the right direction.

Fact: 6521 employed and self-employed people were injured between 2013-14 due to such accidents*.

As well as this course, risk assessments are also an invaluable tool when it comes to fall prevention. For this reason, with any online purchase you make, whether you buy a single licence or enough licences to train your entire organisation on our online management system, every assigned user will be given access to our free '5 steps to risk assessment' forms.

Once a course has been purchased it will expire one calendar year from the day it is bought. When a user has passed and completed a main course, they will receive a certificate of achievement which lasts for three years; refresher course certificates will expire one calendar year from completion.

 

Work at Height Regulations:

We overview the Work at Height Regulations (issued in 2005) – aimed to help reduce any possible injuries. This section will give your workforce a more in-depth idea of who is responsible for the tasks employees undertake and explains how the Work at Height Regulations help to minimise any falls which could occur when working above ground level.
