The rationale for the Temporary Works Supervisor’s Training Course is to raise and set standards across the industry and allow a transferable knowledge base between employers, avoiding unnecessary supplementary training.
On completion of the course candidates should have a basic understanding of:
- Work at Height Regulations 2005 (as amended)
- Employees and employers legal duties under Regulations
- Hierarchy of risk control
- Edge protection
- Access towers and work platforms
- MEWPS / cherry pickers / man-cages
- Fall restraint and arrest
- Ladders & stepladders
- Risk assessment considerations
- Pre-use checks
- Inspection & examination
- From use of simple stepladders to safety harnesses, the Work at Height Regulations 2005 apply to all work where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury, and are therefore relevant to nearly all businesses. This course will dispel mysteries and myths attached to the Regulations and show how they can be applied appropriately at all levels of an organisation. The course can be completed in ½ day and the content and emphasis can be adapted to be to all types of business. It can also be expanded to 1 day or further to include practical elements – correct use of safety harnesses or ladders and stepladders where required or practical
