The BPEC Working at Height Access (WaHAT) Training Course is up and running

BPEC recently successfully launched its Working at Heights Access Training Course with a very well received pilot training course at the Turner Access Training Centre in Scotland.

Lawrie Kennedy, Lecturer at Glasgow Clyde College who attended the course commented:

“The course was very good it was delivered in a very professional manner with anecdotes and some fun interaction between the lecturers. The content was of a high standard and we were all able to participate in the building of scaffolding towers. The Materials e.g. the BetaGuard was very easy and safe to work with and excellent innovation by Turner Access, all in all a very informative and enjoyable course.”

Details of the Course:

Aluminium towers are only one of many different types of access equipment which may be selected for working at height, depending on the tasks being undertaken.

The course has been designed with the cooperation of Turner Access and will provide an overview of the process of assessing the risk associated with particular work at height tasks to ensure that you understand the advantages and limitations of aluminium towers and that, if an aluminium tower is selected, that it is the correct choice of equipment.

The course content will cover;

  • Risk Assessment
  • Regulations
  • Tower Configurations (Assembly of the Access Equipment)
  • Dismantling the Tower
  • Ties
  • Maintenance
