Who Should Attend The Course

This course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for rescue and retrieval of casualties after arrested falls using safety harnesses, lanyards and associated P.F.P.E (Personal Fall Protection Equipment) in the work place. There are no prerequisite required for this course but a good head for heights is essential.

What Will You Get From The Safety Harness Rescue Course

Each delegate will be aware of the difference between Work Positioning, Fall Arrest and Fall Restraint ‘Gotcha’ Assent and Descent Rescue System and the common hazards associated with the use of personal fall protection equipment and working at height in general. In addition, this course is designed to enable each delegate to competently select, set up, inspect and use the following range of commonly used rescue/evacuation equipment:

  • ‘Gotcha’ Assent and Descent Rescue System.

Since the use of rescue and evacuation equipment with safety harnesses requires that you comply with regulations and industry standards and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for all WAH rescue personnel.

Similarly, since the inspection, operation and use of WAH rescue and evacuation equipment can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit and in good health and should, generally, not have problems with eyesight or hearing, heart disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, fear of heights / vertigo, giddiness / difficulty with balance, impaired limb function, alcohol or drug dependence or psychiatric illness.

If you have any problems with literacy or language comprehension, or have any doubts about your fitness to attend this course, you must bring them to the attention of your employer and to us prior to attending. This need not preclude you from attending, provided both your employer and our instructors are able to conduct an assessment and put into place adequate control measures, to take account of any difficulties you may have.
