Building access course

Professional construction access training

Construction access is referred to as all work carried out at height where classic technical means are used to access the work site. This includes, among others:  

  • scaffolding,  
  • lifts,  
  • landings,  
  • ladders.  

A type of construction access is also known as climbing on structural elements and structures, such as columns. Once at the work site, the equipment and skills are used for fall protection and positioning using supports or suspension.

Scope of training 

The training courses known as building access consist of both theoretical and practical classes. During the course, trainees learn, among other things, about the regulations on working at height, as well as the hazards that can occur during this type of occupation. They will also learn what factors can contribute to accidents and how to reduce their occurrence. In addition, the training course will systematise knowledge of the rights and obligations to be observed by employees. They will also learn about personal protective equipment, which includes work at heights equipment used to protect against risks to our health and life.

On the construction course, those attending will also learn about belay points and different types of posts, and how they should be built using site conditions. In addition, they will gain practical knowledge of how to tie knots, which are used when working at height. In addition, the training course will teach students the basic principles of autoranging. They will be introduced to belaying methods and systems, as well as the equipment used for this purpose.  

By taking courses with our company, each student will not only gain knowledge that they will use in their future work, but also ensure greater safety for themselves and their colleagues. 

The course concludes with both practical and theoretical examinations.

Building access training does not replace safety trainingwhich is compulsory. The basic course is designed to give participants specialised knowledge of working at height using personal protective equipment.  

When a trainee starts in a position where they will be working at heights, our company offers the possibility to supplement building access training with initial health and safety training. This can be carried out together with basic height training. Each participant will receive a certificate attesting to its completion.  

When an employee is already employed and performing work at heights and when the deadline for periodic training is approaching, our company offers the possibility of taking such a course as well. It should take place at least once a year. 

We invite you to find out more about the courses our company offers.
