On successful completion of Safety Harness Theory session on day 1, delegates can then progress on to the practical elements of training.

  • On completion of the course they should be able to install temporary access systems on masts, towers and similar structures. They will also be able to climb using a double-legged lanyard and safely position themselves to work at height.
  • 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.
