Safety Harness Training

When working at a height, a harness is often required. But merely wearing a harness is not enough; you must know how to use it. That is why we offer training courses to ensure that employees can work safely at a height by protecting them against a serious fall. We teach harness wearers in one part of the day about the risks, the requirements and the right way to wear and secure a harness. The legal provisions and possible, dangerous incidents are also explained.

Who needs harness training?

This certificate is indispensable for anyone who goes to work at a height. Operators of aerial work platforms, people on scaffolding or, for example, builders of decors. Participation in the training does not require specific prior education.

In one half day we cover:

  • Health and safety legislation and legal provisions
  • Practical instruction and the right way to wear a harness

Duration of the training and exams
