IOSH Rope Access Manager Course 21st & 22nd September 2022

$900.00

21st & 22nd of September 2022

Partnering with High-Q UK (IRATA O/T 8149), 5th Point will be hosting a IOSH Safety Management in the Rope Access and Working at Height Industry Course.

In recent years there has been an increase in the number of serious rope access incidents, and this has brought attention from regulators. The HSE in the UK observed in a letter to IRATA that improvements should be made in the areas of:

  • Planning, organisation and control of industrial rope access to provide safe systems of work;
  • Supervision, competence and human and organisational factors in rope access operations;
  • Audit, monitoring and review of compliance with recognised good practice.

In response to this clear industry need, High Q UK have developed a benchmark health and safety competence for Managers and Supervisors who are responsible for rope access and work at height projects.

The course addresses those areas of concern noted by the HSE, and also addresses the competence requirements detailed in the IRATA ICOP and ISO 22846, but that are not currently addressed by the IRATA Level 3 training scheme. Particular emphasis will be on planning work, to ensure that candidates are meeting their legal obligations and can follow established best practice.

The course is approved by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and successful participants receive an IOSH certificate. IOSH are the world leader in health and safety training, and over 179,000 take their courses every year.
