Working at Height Training Course
US $200.00

Falling from a height is one of the most common causes of death and injury of seafarers despite the effort to ensure safe working conditions for those onboard ships. International maritime regulations do not have many specific requirements for working at height, but the ISM code requires that risks associated with all work tasks onboard must be assessed before a job is started.

This course will define work at height; describe how to safely access working places at height and use of safety equipment. The course will also raise the awareness of risks with regards to dropped objects from work done at height. 

In this course we highlight the importance of having a strong safety culture in combination with good knowledge and following best practices when working at height. On completion of this course Documentary Evidence will be issued by Ocean TG powered by Seagull and Videotel.
