Falls from height are one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries at work; common incidents include falls from ladders and through fragile surfaces, however, utilising suitable fall protection equipment, and ensuring that employees are adequately trained to work safely at height can prevent accidents, serious injuries, and deaths in the workplace.
Industry Training Services are hosting a FREE Working at Heights Demo Day at its Portadown site on Thursday 25th November 2021. This event is ideal for business owners and employees who work at height, training coordinators, health and safety managers, maintenance and facilities managers, and other individuals who are passionate about reducing deaths and accidents in the workplace.
Delegates will receive a tour of ITS’s new working at heights training facilities and have the opportunity to watch various practical demonstrations throughout their session. Participants will also gain more insight into our working at heights courses which cover:
- Commercial roof access
- IPAF: safe and effective use of powered access equipment
- PASMA: safety for those involved in the mobile access tower industry
- System scaffold & scaffold Inspection
- Harness wear & inspection
There will be opportunities for participants to ask questions and network with other visitors.
