Height Safety Training

In order to make safety a priority, it is essential that workers have the training they need in order to carry out works with the minimum of risk.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places employers as responsible for ensuring the safety of their employees and others. This responsibility is further enforced by regulations.

Eye Pro Ltd offer training courses to suit a wide range of clients and help them to meet these regulations.

Confined Spaces 01

The HSE defines a confined space as one which is ‘substantially enclosed’ and ‘where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby’.

Working At Height

Regulations 5 and 6 (5)(b) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 state that the duty holder must “ensure that everyone involved in the work is competent (or, if being trained, is supervised by a competent person). This includes involvement in organisation, planning, supervision, and the supply and maintenance of equipment.”

Eye Pro Ltd run a comprehensive Work at Height course, complying with BS 8454: 2006. We run this course for the end users of installed systems, and any one who needs to have fall arrest and work at height awareness, along with PPE inspection. We can run these courses on your site – where appropriate, or at our own purpose built facilities.
