Working at Heights Training is a ½ day (up to 3 hours) training course conducted on your site.
This working at heights training course meets the statutory requirements of the Health & Safety Executive. This course includes Ladder safety training as well as step ladder safety training. You should make sure that people with sufficient skills, knowledge and experience are employed to perform the task, or, if they are being trained, that they work under the supervision of somebody competent to do it.
In the case of low-risk, short duration tasks involving ladders, competence requirements may be no more than making sure employees receive instruction on how to use the equipment safely (eg how to tie a ladder properly) and appropriate training. Training often takes place on the job, it does not always take place in a classroom.
When a more technical level of competence is required, for example drawing up a plan for assembling a complex scaffold, existing training and certification schemes drawn up by trade associations and industry is one way to help demonstrate competence.

The Dorset Construction Training Forum which has 58 Dorset based construction companies as members have been working with Award H&S for four years. During this time Chris and his team have delivered asbestos awareness training and scaffold safety training courses to our members. Award are an extremely helpful and knowledgable organisation, I value their updates on the latest H&S issues that our members have to consider and their flexible approach to our demanding training needs.
Dorset Construction Training Forum
Two years ago we first heard of Award H&S when we were looking for a local company to provide training for us, as our current H&S consultants worked out as non cost effective solution.
Chris came along and carried out the training for us and the amount of positive feedback I received from operatives and management was unbelievable. They liked Chris’s teaching manner in the way he made things simple and put things into basic English that everyone understood.
Our relationship has now got stronger and stronger and we now consider Award as an extension of our own company, and long may it continue!

We used Award for some essential site staff training in Manual Handling and Working at Heights and were extremely pleased with what was delivered. The training was engaging and fun and staff gave it great feedback. The fact the training was in house kept costs and travelling times right down. I will use Award for all the training I possibly can from now on!
The Downs School,
I would just like to say a huge thank you for the work your company have provided for us with the health and safety course. Chris was an incredible teacher and was able to present the course to everyone’s abilities.
We will be in contact regarding other courses as the service you have provided is outstanding.
