Platform Decking for Managers 

Platform Decking is a method of providing safe access at height during traditional and timber frame Housebuild construction. It sits close to the top of the Work at Height Hierarchy because a Platform Decking System prevents the worker from falling. FASET have authored an Installers course which concludes in a Blue CSCS card to evidence competence and a Managers course.
