Why do you need training?

Working at Height training is crucial to all who participate in any activities that require you to work, supervise, plan or organise work at height.

Did you know?

 Over 200 people are killed each year in accidents at work and over one million people are injured. Over two million suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work. Effective training can help to make you or your workforce competent and confident in health and safety.
