Who should attend work at height training courses?
It is mandatory for anyone who works at height to undergo training and it is the employers or duty holder’s responsibility to ensure that this training is provided. If Work at Height personnel do not receive proper training, it will breach a number of regulations set out by HSE.
Why Are These Training Courses So Important?
It isn’t just a matter of what health and safety regulations state you should do, but it is also about the moral importance of protecting your personnel against the risks of Working at Height. It is similar to asking ‘Why is it important to learn how to drive before entering the driving seat of a car?’. The training courses ensure operatives know how to access the equipment that they are using, what to do when the equipment fails, and what to do in an emergency. Without this training, the risks of injury or death are greatly increased, as there are many health and safety breaches to allowing personnel to operate Work at Height equipment without the knowledge on how to use them.
