Tower Crane Rescue

Cost Per Person: £180 + VAT
Duration: 1 Day

A course designed to provide the individual with the skills and confidence to rescue fellow workers from tower cranes.  Rescues carried out on access routes to the cab, from the cab itself and surrounding platform area.

A further 1 days training can be added to include rescue from the crane jib.

Ideally the course is delivered on site, as this allows for trainee rescuers to experience accessing the crane cab at a realistic height.  Alternatively training can be delivered at the HART training centre in Kent.
