The course explains that the most effective control measure is to avoid working at height where there is a safer way to do a task. Where access to heights is essential, the course provides advice on reducing risk by selecting, inspecting and using access equipment safely. Ladders are covered in some detail, with more general information provided about other means of access, and fall restraint and fall arrest systems. The course does not cover the technical detail of the many systems available.
Harm from falling objects to those below is also considered.
The course uses hazard spotting exercises, case studies and other interactions to engage, inform and reinforce learning points.

A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
