High Bay Racking Access and Rescue: SpanSet

High Bay Racking Access and Rescue: SpanSet - 1578

This course is designed for warehouse operators who intend to access, high bay racking and automated cranes using personal fall arrest systems, and use work positioning techniques to carry out work at height. They will also be able to perform a rescue, or evacuation of an injured / suspended colleague to ground level.

On completion of the course they should be able to inspect, fit and adjust their personal fall protective equipment & safely gain access to the automated cranes using fixed guided type fall arrest systems. They will also be able climb into the high bay racking using a double-legged lanyard, making a safe transition from the crane and into the racking, and safely position themselves to work at height.

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.
