OVERVIEW

  • This course is designed for those who intend to access rooftops, or similar structures using preinstalled fall arrest systems and use work restraint techniques to carry out work at height.
  • On completion of the course they should be able to carry out pre-use checks and use pre-installed access systems. They will also be able to set-up work restraint systems for fall prevention using a variety of different techniques and equipment.
  • During training delegates will be expected to carry out activities at height. This will provide an insight into the delegates’ ability to operate in such conditions. This is only an indication of their capability, as it is not possible to recreate exact working environments.
  • The actual height and exposure will be set out on the certification, but this is only to show what was included in the training. The height shown on the certification is not intended to limit the height at which the delegate can operate.
  • Further details of the training facilities, first aid provision, insurance, etc are available upon request.
