Harness Training Courses
Learn About Safe Use of Harness Training!
There are numerous risks in the workplace. Employees who work in physically high places are especially exposed to a significant risk of injury if they fall. In the UK, falls from high places are one of the main causes of workplace fatalities.
A safety harness is designed to protect people from falls or accidents and are a vital piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) that can prevent serious injuries and even save lives.
TPB’s safety harness training course is designed to teach people how to use harnesses safely and effectively. The topics covered in the safety harness training include:
- How to inspect safety harnesses for damage;
- How to put on and take off safety harnesses correctly;
- How to attach safety harnesses to an anchor point;
- The different types of anchor points;
- How to use lanyards, karabiners, and other connectors safely;
- How to position your body while working at a height;
- What to do if you need to rescue someone who has fallen;
Most importantly, participants will also learn about the dangers of using a harness incorrectly and how to avoid these dangers.
Harnesses work by distributing the force of an impact evenly across the body, which reduces the risk of serious injury.
But while harnesses are essential for keeping people safe, they can also be dangerous if not used correctly. That’s why all employees who work in high places should receive proper safety harness training.
