Work at Height training course helps participants to understand the national and international regulations related to working at height as well as provides necessary information needed to be able to successfully mitigate working at height risks and implement control measures. We need protection because even those of us with experience working at heights can lose our balance or grip; we can slip, trip, or misstep at any time.
We may think that our reflexes will protect us, but we’re falling before we know it, and we don’t have to fall far to be seriously injured. We’ve been falling since Day One. Until we get better at landing, we’ll need protection from falling.
