Gantry Rescue Training

It is an employer’s responsibility to ensure that their workers are provided with safe working conditions. As well as mitigating any potential hazards, and providing appropriate safety training and equipment, it is also important that you take appropriate measures and have proper procedures in place for rescues in the event of a fall. Unsafe rescues can actually make a rescue situation worse, leading to injury to additional parties.

The Work At Height Regulations (WAHR 2005) dictates that anybody working at height must be competent to do so. They must have received appropriate training, and this training should have been provided by a recognised and accredited training facility. The gantry rescue training course is aimed at rescuers, as well as workers and supervisors of those that work in these potentially hazardous conditions.

REAX Ltd is an accredited training centre based in Blackpool Lancashire. We have trained and qualified instructors, can provide both theoretical and practical training to all candidates, and we have specialist facilities. We can offer training to individuals or groups, and because we offer a selection of training dates, our courses can meet your operational requirements.
