Working at Height Training

Rope Access

The expertise your people need while working at height

Working at height involves accessing work locations which have an inherent risk of falling. It is not surprising that falling from height is the leading cause of workplace fatalities due to its prevalence in almost every industry sector, and the severe consequences of an accident occurring. However, there are numerous access systems to help mitigate the risk, from the basic to very complex. The access system chosen should be based on a thorough risk assessment, including the practicalities of completing a work task whilst using a particular system.

Working at Height Protection Systems

Access systems and how the risk of falling is mitigated can be separated into collective and personal measures. The following give examples of each (non-exhaustive)

  • Collective – Protects more than one person

    • Scaffold Platforms

    • Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs)

    • Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) Cradles

    • Guard rails, Barriered Platforms/Rooftops

    • Parapet Walls

    • Safety Netting, Airbags, Padded systems

  • Personal – Protects the individual

    • Work restraint

    • Fall Arrest systems

    • Work Positioning

    • Industrial Rope Access

Personal systems require 3 fundamental components which should be appropriate for the fall protection system:

  • Anchors
  • Connecting Lanyards/Devices
  • Harness
Tower Climb

Access systems and personal fall protection equipment

The variety of access systems and personal fall protection equipment make it paramount that those conducting risk assessments, planning works, and ultimately using the equipment, are trained and competent to do so. We provide a range of work at height training, courses and services, focusing mainly on the higher risk area of – Personal Fall Protection Systems. These access systems require more in-depth user knowledge and a safe learning environment to practice techniques under supervision.
