From use of simple stepladders to safety harnesses, there is an imminent risk of a fall which may cause personal injury while performing work at height. Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. Common cases include falls from ladders and through fragile surfaces. All these accidents would have been preventable, and everything possible needs to be done to ensure that this type of accident does not continue occurring. Work at height means working in a place (except a staircase in a permanent workplace) where a person could be injured by falling from it, even if it is at or below ground level.
By the end of theory module participants would be familiar with:
By the end of practical module participants would be familiar with:
This course aims to enable staff at all levels to understand the risks and legal implications of working at height and the practical measures that should be employed to control them. Simply put, if workers are not been trained to the correct level and if this training is not regularly refreshed, then there is an increased risk of accidents that could be potentially life threatening.
We quite impressed with the last training session, which was conducted by Mr.Bharath-Trainer from NIST on 30-06-2017 at one of our ongoing project at Koyambedu. Mr Barath has demonstrated the Work at height hazards and risks with understandable steps to our Pile RIG operators and helpers at site premises.
Training session given by Mr.Bharat was excellent. He has shown very good interest in theoretical and practical session.he has good knowledge of safety precaution taken for "work at height" and also have very good experience in similar field. The Participants are very happy as they get very good technical as well as theoretical knowledge. Thanks for conducting GOOD TRAINING PROGRAM
