This course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for the formal inspection of safety harnesses, lanyards and associated F.P.E (Fall Protection Equipment) in the work place. There are no prerequisite required for this course although a working knowledge of safety harnesses, lanyards and associated F.P.E (Fall Protection Equipment) would be an advantage.
Since the safe use of fall protection equipment requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, English literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any user.
Each delegate will be given instruction in all relevant legislation, guidance, standards and best practice to be able to design a scheme of examination, produce a examination inspection report and inspect common work at height FPE (Fall Protection Equipment) including:
- Safety Harnesses
- Fall Arrest Lanyards
- Work Position Lanyards
- Work Restraint Lanyards
There will be a theory session where delegates will be expected to carry out a number of formal inspections on fall protection equipment. At the end of the course, delegates will take a short multiple choice test. Upon successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a Kentec Certificate of Training and Photo ID Card, valid for 3 years.
The course covers the following:
- Legislation, Standards and Guidance regarding FPE
