Falls from height are still a major cause of death and injury in the UK. We have found that 80% of our delegates have been issued the wrong type of safety harness and/or lanyard which would result in them having little or no protection against injury or worse.

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