Height Safety - Level 2 Refresher

  • The aim of this course is to provide the delegate an opportunity to refresh their theoretical knowledge and practical skills and gain re-certification. The course follows the same syllabus as the Height Safety Level 2 training but focuses on initial assessment of the delegate's skill level and practical exercises to ensure compliance with the requirements for Height Safety Level 2 training.

    Included in the training will be any necessary updates in legislation, procedures and equipment. This course does not allow a Height Safety Level 1 credited person to gain Level 2 accreditation. People requiring re-certification at Height Safety Level 1 should re-attend the 1-day Height Safety Level 1 course.
