3A Mobile Vertical (Scissor Lift)
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 requires anyone that works at height are to be deemed competent – if someone is not competent, they should not work at height unless supervised by a competent person.
How is someone deemed competent? – training, knowledge and experience.
Our Harness and Fall Arrest course will correctly train and test you or your staff in the safe use, selection, pre use check, storage, disposal procedures and correct wearing on the harness. Without successfully completing adequate training you risk being non compliant with the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
Small Training Solutions are approved to issue our own certification or NPORS Accredited certification, both options will provide proof of training, all certification is backed up with your record of training archived on our secure system. Harness training is a great way to also ensure your staff are aware of their responsibilities.
Injuries are in the thousands, and while people might assume that they are not in much danger while working at low levels on a ladder, those falls can make up a large number of these injuries. RIDDOR statistics released before the Work at Height Regulations 2005 showed that 60% of falls recorded were “low falls” from below head height.
This course is designed for those personnel who are required to use the 3A Mobile Vertical also known as the scissor lift in the workplace.
