The EssentialSkillz Working at Height Online Training uses hazard spotting exercises, case studies and other forms of interaction to encourage users to think about the hazards of working at height.
For many workers, the aim is to avoid working at height, for example through how the workplace is organised. Where access to heights is essential, the Working at Heights online course provides advice on selecting, inspecting and using access equipment safely. Harm from falling objects to those below is also considered.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this online Working at Heights training can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation.
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).
