Need Training in Rescue?

This training should only be done once you have completed the 1 day "Work Safely At Heights" course.

About The Course

Legislation requires that personnel working under fall arrest conditions have an emergency plan and a means of rescuing a fallen, suspended worker. It is critical that the casualty be rescued as soon as possible; therefore the use of emergency services for rescue should generally be the last option.

It is not always possible to use mechanical devices such as elevating work platforms, etc for rescue operations. Access Unlimited's Fallen Worker Rescue course is designed for all personnel required to wear fall arrest/confined space harnesses. The training is based upon the use of simple and rapid pre-rigged rescue kits that do not require the rescuer to go over an edge in order to assess the casualty. This half day practical course is delivered by experienced height safety and rescue specialists.
