Gotcha Pole Top Rescue - Module 5D: SpanSet

Gotcha Pole Top Rescue - Module 5D: SpanSet - 1575

This module is designed to make operatives fully conversant in the operation of the Pole Top Rescue Kit and it’s various modes of use.

The course will enable operatives to use the kit to rescue an unconscious casualty fallen from a pole top.

The kit is capable of recovering casualties who are suspended from fall arrest lanyards and work position lanyards.

This module is intended for operatives who are already conversant in the use of their personal fall protection equipment.

During training delegates will be expected to carry out activities at height. This will provide an insight into the delegates’ ability to operate in such conditions. This is only an indication of their capability, as it is not possible to recreate exact working environments.

The actual height and exposure will be set out on the certification, but this is only to show what was included in the training. The height shown on the certification is not intended to limit the height at which the delegate can operate.
