Low Level Access Equipment Training Course

Low Level Access Equipment Training Course (Accredited)

Accredited Low Level Access Equipment Safety Training Course

Low level access equipment is becoming steadily more common in a range of industries, with equipment like folding/low-level access towers and podium steps all seeing increasingly more widespread use.

This nationally-accredited course is designed to adhere to the standards set out by the Health & Safety at Work act. Instructors teaching this course will cover topics such the assembly and dismantling of low-level access equipment, the specific hazards and risks involved with its use, the responsibilities of its user and the proper approach to inspecting components for damage or wear.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, delegates will be fully capable of assembling, dismantling and relocating low level access units without exposing themselves or others to any risk of personal injury. They will also be confident in their ability to carry out a safe, thorough inspection of the equipment before use.

This is one of our Half-Day courses here at Browns, which means it will last a maximum of 4 hours. Candidates will be tested with both theory and practical assessments, and on successful completion will be issued with a certificate and photocard ID. Due to the accredited nature of the course, these are both valid for 5 years.

Course Candidates

Our nationally recognised and accredited low-level access equipment training course is available – and indeed actively recommended – for anyone who uses low level access equipment, whether occasionally or on a regular daily basis. The versatility and relatively high stability of low-level access equipment makes it useful for a diverse range of tasks, so anyone working in a broad array of industries can benefit from training on its correct use.

This includes employees operating in locations such as construction sites, industrial units, shops, schools, hospitals or colleges, using access equipment with a height of 2.0m or below.

You will need to bring proper head protection, gloves protective footwear and suitable clothing for the practical session, to minimise the risk of injury.

Finally, it’s wise to bear in mind weather conditions!
