Course Curriculum

Module 01: Introduction, Regulations and Duties

Module one clarifies the definition of “Working at Height”, and provides statistics for the most commonly experienced incidents in the UK. We also look at the UK regulations (WAHR 2005) that govern this work and the legal responsibilities that employees and employers hold with this type of work.

Module 02: Assessment and Prevention

In Module two, we explore the full process of applying risk assessment to planned work, where height-related tasks are required to be performed. It details the many types of hazards you can expect to encounter and how to prevent or minimise the opportunity for any harm to befall anyone.

Module 03: Work at Height Equipment

In Module Three, the course examines the many types of equipment that a worker can expect to use during work at height. This leads to guidelines of how best to use devices such as MAWPs and Scaffolding, and the crucial inspection pointers for devices such as step-ladders and podium steps.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body.

Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
