Heights & Harness Systems

Course Overview

This one day course is able to combine two key aspects of height safety as a combined course or deliver separately the components of;

Use a safety harness system when working at heights and

Use, install and disestablish temporary proprietary height safety systems when working at heights

Unit 23229 (safety harness systems) is a pre-requisite for ‘proprietary height safety systems’ so we are able to deliver both together or separately.

The course is all about the equipment and systems required to be safe at heights. We cover harnesses (their construction, standards, maintenance and use) and systems, (anchor points, fall arrest and planning for emergency rescue)

We use our purpose- built training facility for the height and harness practical work. We provide the safety equipment for the training but can use customer equipment provided this meets all standards.

We can also customise training to suit conditions on your site.
