Taking working at heights training to the next level
Working at heights training is about fall prevention. Our BeSafe course is designed to equip workers with the knowledge and skills to safely work in any height situation, and is primarily aimed at construction, maintenance, large factories or other situations where work is conducted in a place where a fall from one level to another is possible. On the BeSafe Working at Heights training courses, participants will learn about safety protocols that will benefit them for a lifetime.
Essentially, working at height involves doing a job where there is a risk of falling. You are working at a height if you:
- work above ground level
- could fall off an edge, or through an opening
- could fall from ground level into an opening or crack on the ground.
This training course covers everything from the main causes of falls and how to manage them, tips for working on scaffolding and ladders and our trainers will go through a number of case studies, so attendees can get to grips with the real-life applications of the safety skills we teach.
Our level 2 working safely at heights training course is designed for those who are exposed to the risk of a fall while working at height, particularly anyone who wears a harness at work.
When working at height, it’s important the necessary safety equipment, such as a fall arrest harness, is worn at all times. It is also important that workers have the correct training to perform tasks safely and understand the risks involved. Our training course will provide attendees with the knowledge and hands on experience to ensure they understand their responsibilities and have the skills and knowledge to work safely.
