PASMA: Work at Height (Novice)

Is working at height all new to you? Have you changed job and suddenly you’re supposed to know what equipment is available, what inspections need done and how to keep yourself and others safe?
This course won’t teach you everything you need to know – you'd need longer than half a day for that! – but we promise you’ll go home with a clear understanding of your responsibilities and an action plan for what you need to do next.
