This course is aimed at personnel who wish to gain a good general understanding of work at height safety, in particular, those who are or will be responsible for using safety harnesses, lanyards and associated F.P.E (Fall Protection Equipment) in the work place. There are no prerequisites required for this course, although a working knowledge of safety harnesses and fall protection equipment is an advantage.

Since the safe use of fall protection equipment requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, English literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any tower user.
