Intended for all those whose duties may involve some working at heights, this ½ day awareness course addresses the high risk associated with such work, even at a low height, and the requirements of the 2005 legislation and a detailed discussion of the appropriate use of ladders and steps, and rules for safety. The course concentrates on what the delegate really needs to know for the type of the work being done, for specific applications and work locations.
