Why should I attend this course?
This safety harness training course is for anyone who regularly works whilst wearing a harness or lanyard for support and those in need of fall arrest in their occupation.
Safety harness training is critical if you work at height. Falls from height are among the biggest causes of deaths and life-changing injuries in the workplace; this highlights the importance of understanding your safety harness and related PPE.
Not only can a fall from height lead to personal harm, but it can also lead to legal repercussion and investigation into your compliance with legislation. Therefore, to protect yourself and your company, you need to make sure you follow all the right procedures and work in line with the regulations.
