Working Safety at Height & Safety Harness Training
This course has been designed for all staff who access and use a roof area for their work, including maintenance staff, property managers and building owners.
To enable delegates to work safely at Height using appropriate Personal fall prevention equipment and Fall Prevention Systems. Systems covered on the course include Fall Prevention Systems (FPS); Suspended Access Systems (SAS) and Personal Fall Protection Equipment (PFPE).
Objectives covered in this course:
Delegates will acquire the knowledge and skills to:
- Understand relevant Health & Safety legislation and their duties.
- Check and wear appropriate Personal fall prevention equipment (PFPE).
- Understand the components of Fall Prevention Systems and be able to ascertain whether they are safe to use.
- Demonstrate the use of Fall Prevention Systems.
- Have a basic understanding of what actions to take in a fall incident.
This course is delivered on-site, which means that we can be flexible with timings to fit in with your schedule.
There is a minimum requirement for 3 delegates and a maximum of 6 per training session.
The course will need to be run in a dedicated quiet area or training room, where the delegates can concentrate without distraction.
The instructor and delegates will need safe access to the roof area for the delivery of the practical elements of the course. The instructor will require access to the roof at least one hour before the scheduled training start time.
If roof access is via temporary ladders, it is imperative that delegates are trained on the inspection, use and maintenance of temporary ladder systems prior to this training.
Participants must have access to suitable PFPE for the training (Two sets are acceptable as a minimum). HBE can supply Safety harnesses and other PFPE for purchase. Please advise at the time of booking if PFPE is required.
Delegates should dress in appropriate attire for wearing a harness and using a roof.
HBE will highlight any areas of risk identified during the training, however, the instructor reserves the right to cancel the training should the access route to the roof be deemed unsafe.
The course will conclude with a short course test. Successful completion of the course test and the practical elements will result in certification by HBE. In line with our ISO14001 environmental targets, training certificates will be submitted in electronic format. Hard copies of the certificate can be provided at an additional cost.
