Website Update: Work at Height and Rescue Courses

Three new and updated courses added to the website today. These cover:

  • Basic Safe working at Height
  • Basic Safe working at Height and the Use of Rescue Kits

and

  • Advanced Working at Height and Rescue

These three courses cover everything from basic techniques and awareness as required under BS8454, leading onto the specialist rope access and rescue techniques that are covered in BS ISO 22846.

Following on from these, shortly we hope to be working with an international organisation to deliver their rope rescue courses from level 1 responder upwards.

Contact Us for more details of these courses or have a look at our Specialist Workplace Training page.
