Height Safety Equipment can be Redundant without Suitable Training
It is a happy fact that protective height safety measures and aerial apparatus of all kinds is now widely available for you to purchase. Indeed, everything from lanyards and inertia reels to guardrails and cable systems can now be purchased quickly and easily on the Internet. Naturally, this is very good news for your aerial workers as they can be sure the solutions you source will suit their requirements exactly.
All the Gear, but no Idea?
Of course, sourcing physical safety measures is not enough in itself to ensure the safety of operatives who have to carry out their tasks at height. In order to optimise their safety, aerial workers will need to know everything about the measures you source for them and be highly proficient in how best to use them.
In short, they need to be suitably trained.
Without proper training, even the most state-of-the-art and user friendly working at height measures and safety gear can be made somewhat redundant. Quite simply, safety measures and effective training go hand in hand; therefore it is essential that your operatives receive both.
Whilst suitable safety training is often crucial in any industry; it is arguably even more important within occupational sectors that require operatives to carry out tasks high above the ground. After all, people who work at height put themselves in great danger whenever they ascend buildings or structures to take on an aerial task. To be sure, a brief lapse in concentration or slight false move can often be enough to cost one of these brave individuals their wellbeing (or even their life).
So, it really is fair to say that effective training is certainly a worthy investment.
