Certificate in Working at Height

About the Course

Duration: 29 minutes (approx).

Falls from a height remain the most common cause of workplace fatalities but working at height is often unavoidable. Employers must ensure any work at height is undertaken in a safe and secure manner and that regulations are strictly followed. This includes the planning, the supervision, and ensuring the work is carried out by competent people.

This essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to ensure that work conducted at a height in your setting is done in a safe and reliable manner and follows the relevant legal framework.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere.

Delivered by health and safety expert James Whelan, the course has been divided into five modules with a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence your learning.
