Often maintenance has to be carried out on a structure that is too high or inaccessible for the use of scaffolding or cherry pickers etc. Fall Arrest equipment is used where ropes are not necessary due to the provision of a ladder for access to the structure. The use of fall arrest equipment allows for the safe ascent of ladders on structures, as well as functioning as a restraint system once work has begun. Fall arrest equipment and techniques are also required during the installation of permanent lifelines on a structure.

The aim is to ensure the safety of operators in any location where they are exposed to the risk of a free fall and to provide candidates with adequate knowledge and practical training to enable them to work safely in a variety of exposed locations. The course runs over a period of three days and includes lectures on applicable legislation, duties and responsibilities of operators and the correct usage, inspection and care requirements for personal protective equipment. The practical sessions teach moving with safety on ladders, towers and structures whilst maintaining the principle of double attachment, and the application of fall factors, shock-loads and the damages caused in the event of a fall. Additionally a component of lightweight hauling is covered in this course. In line with current legislation on international best practice, a third day of relevant Rescue training is now a compulsory component of this course.
