We can run a private course or organise training on site for 4 to 12 delegates.

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

This practical course aims to ensure that all buyers and users of ManSafe as well as safety harness & lanyards understand which kit they should be using to offer full protection, and how to properly inspect kit.

Course covers:

  • Health & Safety Laws & Regulations – understanding your legal duty including
  • Work at Height Regulations 2005
  • Responsibilities of the employer and employee
  • Different types of harnesses and lanyards and their practical applications
  • How to put on, fit, wear, work in and store the different types of harnesses
  • Importance of regular safety harness and lanyard inspections – who is responsible and how often they must be done with examples
  • Importance of issuing and using the correct Safety Harness and Lanyards and PPE and how to inspect it

  • How to collate a safe rescue plan to reduce the time an operative is suspended in a harness
  • Operative suspension trauma
  • Delegate practical session with adjustment and fitting of harnesses and lanyards
  • Mansafe system – Inspection, testing, end user equipment
  • Different types of Mansafe systems including roof, wall and ladder systems
  • Practical demonstration of a mansafe system with trans fastner harness and lanyard
  • Test paper/questions/ handouts & review

Who needs ManSafe training
