Rescue Workshop for Managers

The Work at Height Regulations in 2005 helped the construction industry focus on the critical aspects of working at height. One of these is the need to plan the work and ensure a rescue plan is in place. An often overlooked consideration is the evidence that this plan is workable and those carrying out the rescue are trained. 3 Education have authored a half day “stand alone” modular Rescue Workshop which is normally delivered immediately after the FASET Safety Net Inspectors course. This means candidates have a “complete” knowledge about the safe use of nets on site.


The outcome of the “syndicate based” workshop is for candidates to fully understand and plan rescue methods from safety nets. Critically, they will be able to assess the workability of the rescue issues during the build programme. It clarifies responsibilities of those potentially involved.


Candidates are assessed on their knowledge and practical understanding at the end of the workshop. They receive a 3 year Certificate of Attendance along with a “headings list” to allow them to build their own site specific Rescue Plan.
