• Height Safety Level 1

    • The aim of this course is to provide those attending with a comprehensive understanding of how to use personal fall protection equipment in a range of environments. Following training students will be able to identify the hazards associated with work at height, have an understanding of relevant key legislation, understand the various categories of personal fall protection equipment (PFPE) including its characteristics and limitations.

      They will be able to carryout a simple pre-use inspection of items and understand the need for record keeping, traceability and how to dispose of equipment correctly.

      On successful completion of the course those attending will be provided with both the theoretical and practical skills required in order to use a range of fall arrest, work positioning and restraint equipment. A key element of this course is practical application. Students spend a large amount of time practicing climbing techniques using temporary safety systems, installed and structural anchors. The training also includes a demonstration of applicable rescue techniques.
