Working at Height

Small Training Solutions provide a range of working at height training such as MEWPS, Harness and Mobile Towers

Working at Height is any work on, below, or above ground level where there is risk of personal injury through falling and/or a potential risk to people below the work site being injured by falling objects. Working at Height training is essential to all who engage in any activities that require you to work, supervise, plan or organise work at height.

Anybody working at height must comply with the Working at Height Regulations 2005. The Working at Height Regulations stipulate that we must avoid working at height where possible.  Employers must do all that is reasonably practicable to prevent anyone falling. Every employer shall ensure that no person engages in any activity, including organisation, planning and supervision, in any relation to working at height or work equipment for use in such work unless he is competent to do so or, if being trained, is being supervised by a competent person.​

Working at Height

COSHH

Small Training Solutions can also offer a range of courses such as COSHH, Health and Safety and Fire Safety. We aim to be a one stop shop for all of your training needs. 

COSHH is designed to be taken by anyone that may come into contact with hazardous substances across a range of working environments. It allows users to identify potential risks associated with working with hazardous substances and how to control them. 

Please contact us for more information on courses available.

First Aid Training

All organisations must ensure by law that they have a sufficient number of employees who possess a first-aid qualification to fulfil their first-aid needs at all times. Employers must ensure that their provision is ‘adequate and appropriate in the circumstances’. It is the employer’s responsibility to decide what the requirements of the organisation are by assessing any specific work hazards and ensuring that sufficient equipment, facilities and personnel are available to deal with the consequences of these hazards.

As part of each assessment, the HSE recommends organisations should consider things such as the nature of the work and the subsequent hazards and risks, the size of the organisation, work patterns and accident histories

First Aid Training

Fire Safety

Effective fire safety training is essential for many employees. This is because fire can destroy lives, close businesses and put a tremendous strain on the health and welfare of those affected by it. Every employee has a role to play in fire safety and the fire-safety qualifications offered by Highfield help to support employees.

Employees successfully completing fire safety training courses resulting in a Highfield qualification will assist organisations in meeting their legal obligations, and provide a much safer working environment for all of their employees.
