About this course

The course administrator within your organisation can:
- Change the pass mark
- Implement the random test question feature which selects 10 questions from a bank of 20.
- Can specify that more than 10 questions must be answered (up to the full bank of 20 questions)
The courses is intended as an introduction to safe working at heights, or as a refresher for people who have attended other courses. It is particularly suitable for staff whose main job does not involve working at height, but who might come across situations where they need to access something out of reach from the floor. It can also be used as part of a blended learning approach for people who are working at height, under the supervision of a specialist, where the work has been planned by someone with a more detailed knowledge of the hazards (for example, working on fragile roofs).
The course is not sufficient for people who work at height as the main part of their role (except as a refresher or preparation for skills-based training). It provides general information about means of fall restraint and fall arrest, but does not cover the technical detail of the many, many systems available for achieving this.
Details how to identify work at height hazards. Describes when to avoid working at height. Describes how to reduce the risk from working at height.
