FASET Safety Nets for Managers 

Safety nets are one way of dealing with height safety issues for those carrying out work activities in fall risk areas—typically, roofers and flooring contractors. They minimise the distance of the fall and minimise injury. This course covers the planning, management and practical issues surrounding the correct use of safety nets on site. 


By the end of the course, candidates will know how to plan for and manage the safe installation of safety nets, understand what to expect from a netting contractor before work starts, identify faults, resultant issues and remedial solutions. 


Candidates are assessed on their knowledge and practical understanding at the end of the course. They receive a 3 year FASET Certificate of Attendance. 

Job Functions

Courses are best held at our purpose built training centre in Westcott. This is because Candidates can see the nets in situ to enhance the learning experience. The course can also be delivered at clients offices or on site, although classroom facilities, power, welfare and refreshments will need to be provided.
