Did you know that working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries? It’s true. If precautions aren’t taken, a person could fall, and end up seriously injured, or even dead. And whether you’re someone who works at height now or will in the future, or just near people that do, you need to know what to do to avoid that risk.
This course will show you how to identify areas considered to be ‘working at height’, and how to implement safe systems of work. This includes how to perform a risk assessment, what control measures for working at height are needed, and what equipment you’ll need.
Ever wondered how they paint the Eiffel Tower or clean the windows on the top of rockets? Yeah, well, neither have we. I mean, it’s important stuff. Astronauts do need to see where they’re going, and that French fancy would rust away without the proper upkeep. Whatever. What’s more important though is keeping you and your staff safe when working at height.
Working at height is defined as work in any place where, if precautions were not taken, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. Related safety issues include control measures, PPE, risk assessment, as well as the do’s and don’ts. And hey presto, this course covers exactly that.
There’s a lot to learn about working from heights. And while it might not be the most interesting subject, taking in the important information could literally save lives. To help deliver the information in a memorable way, we’ve used clever animation, and a touch of humour to tell a story. Approved by IOSH, one of the world’s leading Health and Safety organisations, the course also uses interactive menus, so learners can work at their own pace. There are also knowledge checkers included in the course that help learners apply new learning straight away. And with a final quiz, learners can test what they know and identify areas that they might need more practice in.
This course also has an assessment at the end which allows learners to test their understanding and helps businesses demonstrate a level of competence in the topic.
With a bank of questions learners will get randomised assessments which means if people do fail the assessment, they aren't faced with the same quiz again; after all you want to test learners knowledge and not their ability to remember the right button to press second time around.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
