Working At Height

Course Overview

As per guidelines of OSHAD-SF – Code of Practice 23.0 – Work at Height.

The choice of access equipment for any job involving the outer portion of a high-rise building, window washing, or exterior work will be determined by the height to be negotiated, site circumstances, duration and scope of work, and frequency of access.
