HS3 WORK POSITIONING COURSE
What is Work Positioning?
Many workers who are required to perform tasks at height routinely use fall arrest lanyards and other 'passive' systems that only come into play in the event of a fall but do not assist in the actual task. 'Work Positioning' refers to the more desirable technique of greatly limiting the possibility of a fall (in many cases negating it entirely) as well as partially or fully suspending the operator in a position where they may more easily & safely carry out the task. Modern developments in harness technology, connection systems and other PPE mean a trained operator may carry out difficult tasks without the risk of a fall from height - or the associated rescue of a suspended operator.
