Training, PPE and Client Support


Why is there a need for training?

  • Working at heights is a potentially dangerous activity.
  • Approximately 50% of all fatalities in construction are as a result of a fall.
  • Falls from height are the most common cause of fatal injury and the second most common cause of major injury to employees.
  • Many of these fatalities could have been avoided had the individual been using the correct PPE, been trained in its use and have been using it properly.
  • Personnel not using PPE, or attempting to use PPE without the appropriate training are a danger to themselves, work colleagues and other people.
  • This is why it is required by UK legislation that personnel using
    PPE are given adequate training.

Vertical Technology is able to offer a range of training courses to suit your requirements. Our training courses include:

  • Basic harness training - ½ day course*

*Basic harness training is a pre-requisite to all other courses.
