Working at Heights Course

When we talk about “working at a height” in the workplace, this describes any employee who is working from a height that could injure them if they were to fall off. This includes employees who are working underground such as miners and employees who work in construction, scaffolding, and more. Because of the danger of working from a height, the 2005 Health, Safety, and Welfare at Work act makes it legally obligatory that employees in these industries undertake Working at Heights Training to ensure their safety and the safety of others. The team at SRS Alert Fire Systems Ltd provides working at heights courses to suit all industries, presenting a ½ day course which makes use of theory, multimedia, and role-play to educate you on the dangers of working at heights and how to avoid injury. This course is led by industry experts including frontline emergency service staff to provide educational and professional advice. Following the completion of this course, participants are awarded a working at heights certificate which remains valid for three years.
