Each work at height scenario is different. We can advise you!


Why should you train your workers exposed to working at height ?

  • Working at heights can be defined as work taking place where, if precautions were not taken, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. Any employee who works at heights (scaffolding, decks, wind towers, poles, elevating platforms, roofs, stairs, constructions, suspended vertical work, in confined spaces, logistics centres or transportation facilities, etc.) should be fully aware of the risks involved.

    Employee practical height training is a mandatory and fundamental preventive measure to avoid serious accidents. Occupational risk prevention regulations indicate that employees should be selected with the appropriate experience and training for work at heights procedures. These workers need to act appropriately, informing, evaluating, preventing and addressing any scenarios that could result in a fall from a height.

  • Who should attend our working at height, rescue and confined spaces courses?

    3M's working at height training courses are aimed at any company carrying out work at heights; self-employed professionals, workers and operators. All of our courses are taught by highly qualified instructors and certified by 3M™. Our working at height training combines theoretical classes and practical sessions to apply the acquired knowledge to real situations of work at heights, confined space or rescue.

    An expert in training at heights will contact you. We can advise you on the applicable course or work with you to create a bespoke solution.
