EFS Certificate of Achievement – Working at Height Stage 1 (An Awareness of Working at Height Regulations and Safe Use & Inspection of Portable Ladders/Scaffold Towers) 
 

 
Course Overview 
 
Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. Common cases include falls from ladders and through fragile surfaces. ‘Work at height’ means work in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. As an employer you must make sure work is properly planned, supervised and carried out by competent people with the skills, knowledge and experience to do the job and the right type of equipment for working at height must be used. 
 
This one day course delivered by accredited professionals is for managers, supervisors and employees, who are required to create, implement and maintain a safe system for work at height. In addition to candidates gaining a comprehensive knowledge of the requirements of the Work at Height Regulations, this course includes content on the ‘’Awareness of Work at Height’’ syllabus recommended by the Advisory Committee for Work at Height Training (ACWAHT) together with the ‘’Introduction to use of fall protection equipment’’ syllabus issued by WAHSA.
