Working at Heights

Course Overview

The primary goal of this training is to provide the basic knowledge needed to recognize and avoid hazards associated with working at heights. The WORKING AT HEIGHTS training program has been implemented to try to eliminate injuries and deaths from falls, even from heights of no more than 2 meters.

Note: This is not a regular WAH course. You'll get a blended perspective from a construction background and first responder to help you understand the true "cost" of accidents.
