    What is harness training?

    When working at height it can prove dangerous to be attached to a poorly-fitted safety harness and can often lead to drastic injury and sometimes death, which is why it is absolutely fundamental that proper training is implemented by anyone planning to be in or manage harness equipment when working at height.

    The skills you gain from this course will reduce the chance of a potentially fatal accident for you or your employees and protect your company from the repercussions of those accidents these courses will teach you and your employees the proper assembly, handling and maintenance of safety harnesses to be used by anyone working at height.

    A safety harness is a lifeline given to anyone working at height and is a vital piece of equipment that will act as a fall-arrest system that is designed to reduce the impact of a fall. Although these harnesses are made of durable webbing consisting of nylon or polyester and undergo rigorous testing methods to ensure the practicality of the harness system; it is common for fibres to degrade over time and this degradation can lead to further damage and impact the integrity and effectiveness of the harness system which can potentially put those using the system at a larger risk.
