Not long ago, falls from height were the main concern in the prevention of accidents in the construction industry, but since the introduction of the 'Work At Height Regulations' in 2003, falls whilst working at height are some of the major issues being addressed by the Health and Safety Executive ( HSE ).

Since 2000 Albion Training Services have been conducting training courses to assist employers and the self employed in carrying out their duties under the 'Health And Safety At Work Act 1974'.

Prior to 2003 the majority of our clients were contractors and sub contractors working in the construction industry, but with the introduction of the Work At height Regulations  our clientele has increased and become more varied and diverse. These include professions such as lorry drivers, office personnel, teachers, warehouse operatives, quarrymen, stage hands, technicians and numerous other jobs.

Albion Training Services’ instructors have spent many years working in the access equipment industry as operatives working at height and also as managers and directors controlling personnel where falls from height posed major risks.

We offer training to anyone who work or control others who work at height. Courses vary from training using specific items of access equipment such as scaffold towers, ladders and steps, hydraulic work platforms, fall arrest equipment, system scaffolds, tallescopes and pedal lifts, to courses for operatives working in specific areas such as working on flat or pitched roofs, tanks, scaffolding, backs of lorries…in fact anything that anyone can fall from.

Depending on your requirements, training courses can be specifically designed and conducted on your own premises or at our training in the West Midlands or in St Helens

Courses can be conducted to relevant accreditation where applicable eg. PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association) for scaffold towers and IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) for hydraulic work platforms via our sister training company.

The course agendas shown should be viewed as a guide to the contents of each course, so please remember these can be altered to suit your needs.

If you are still unconvinced that your workers need proper training, watch this video!

This video is an excerpt from a live American teleshopping programme. Luckily Chris was ok, but he could easily have been paralysed.

Our training courses exist to provide your workers with the knowledge to avoid such accidents.
