We’ve found on average 60% of delegates attending our work at height courses had either little or no training on the Man-Safe™ systems installed to protect them. Likewise, 80% of delegates have been issued with the wrong type of safety harness and/or lanyard.

Course feedback

We found the course was delivered professionally and with clear and concise referencing to actual situations faced on site, that we could relate to from our own working on site experiences. Even though we are climbers of Cranes, we came away having learnt areas that will make our work more efficient and safer.
