Working at Heights (Including Ladders)


Our courses range from providing classroom based learning to practical demonstrations and assessment.  Delegates learn about the principles and equipment involved in work at height systems and the process of a safe and systematic approach to working at height operations.   Courses are aimed to benefit managers, supervisors, scaffolds, riggers and work teams involved with anything electrical or mechanical where their job entails them to work at height.

Our instructors have many years of practical on-the-job experience across many industries and provide courses in compliance with Working at Height Regulations 2005.

Do You Comply With The Work At Height Regulations?

This Work at Height Training Course ensures employees comply with the Work at Height Regulations 2005, which state that all employees must receive a qualification to ‘prove ability and competence’.

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 came into force on 6 April 2005. These Regulations replace all earlier regulations about working at height, and implement the European Council Directive 2001/45/EC which specifies minimum safety and health requirements for the use of equipment for work at height.

The main duties under the Work at Height Regulations 2005 are:

  • All work at height is to be properly planned and organized.
  • The risks of working at height must be assessed to ensure appropriate work equipment is selected and used.
  • Employers must ensure that all their workers are trained and competent before beginning any work at height and safe systems of work must be in place.
  • Employees must follow any safety training and instructions given to them.

All users of ladders, step ladders and step stools should have appropriate training in their safe assembly, alteration, dismantling and relocation.

“At Guest Express Transport we have 28 members of staff with approx. 4 that actually hold a national forklift certificate and the rest have a very good knowledge of fork truck driving. I decided to put one member through the instructors course with the view to have all staff members trained to the same level and a level that we as a company are satisfied with. I ended up doing the course myself and I am actually glad I did as it really does highlight the bad habits we all pick up over the years and dangers we put ourselves through every day without even realising!! But fortunately Zoe came in and changed all that within 5 days. I would recommend Ace Trainers for this as they were by far the best on price (I had 4 other quotes as a comparison) and like Guest Express Transport are a family run business and appreciate your business and did go the extra mile to make sure we / I was satisfied. I have now also booked our next 5 years of drivers CPC training, again at a very competitive price and will continue our relationship whenever I need professional people to train my staff to a professional level” In House Instructors Course – 07/01/2013
