Learn the theory of Safety Harness
CPD Certified Provider of Training Excellence Training Approved by Skills for Care

This Safety Harness Level 2 qualification is designed to cover all the components you need to consider before working from height. It will include the safe use and handling of a harness, inspecting the harness, understanding what a fall protection system is and outlining the employer's and employees' duty of care.

So what is a safety harness? A safety harness is a form of protective equipment designed to safeguard the user from injury or death from falling. The core item of a fall arrest system, the harness, is usually fabricated from the rope, braided wire cable, or synthetic webbing. It is attached securely to a stationary object directly by a locking device or indirectly via a rope, cable, or webbing and one or more locking devices. Some safety harnesses are combined with a shock-absorbing lanyard, which regulates deceleration and prevents a severe G-force injury when the rope's end is reached.

This course is ideal for anyone who works from a height where a harness is required.

We also offer a level 1 and 2 working at height qualification, which is designed to cover specific industries and professions and all the considerations you would need to know before working at height.
