What’s it about?
This Safety Harness training qualification is designed to cover all the components you need to consider before working from height. It will include the safe use and handling of a harness, inspecting the harness, understanding what a fall protection system is and outlining the employer’s and employees’ duty of care.
So what is a safety harness?
A safety harness is a form of protective equipment designed to safeguard the user from injury or death from falling. The core item of a fall arrest system, the harness, is usually fabricated from rope, braided wire cable, or synthetic webbing. It is attached securely to a stationary object directly by a locking device or indirectly via a rope, cable, or webbing and one or more locking devices. Some safety harnesses are combined with a shock-absorbing lanyard, which regulates deceleration and prevents a severe G-force injury when the rope’s end is reached.
This course is ideal for anyone who works from a height where a harness is required. A poor-fitting safety harness can prove very dangerous; that is why training is vital for those who commonly use a harness whilst working at height. The skills you gain will help reduce the risk of a potentially fatal accident and protect your company from the repercussions of those accidents.
