What is Safety Harness Train the Trainer and who can benefit?

20 January 2021

The safety of your staff and contractors is of course of the utmost importance. For those working at height across various industry sectors, reducing those immediate risks is even more of a priority. Fall protection has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, with the latest equipment enabling those working at height to do so safely, securely and confidently.

As well as guardrails, personal protection such as safety harnesses remain a must. But to ensure maximum safety while using these harnesses, the user must be able to use it correctly. That’s where your trainers and our Safety Harness Train the Trainer course comes in…
