A standalone course, or a course that can be ‘bolted’ onto the ARTS Level 1. The course focuses on safe access and egress to and from areas of height within the theatre and entertainment environment including lighting booms, trusses, grids and suspended scenery. Equally important is the ability to rescue a fallen or injured work colleague from these areas, a skill that this course will provide you with, not only training in the rescue of fallen technicians, but also those who can become incapacitated on work platforms such as fly floors and follow spots.
The course is best suited for delivery on site allowing for the variety of working at height challenges generated by different theatres/shows. Alternatively training can be delivered at the HART training centre in Kent.
Please contact HART for availability. You can call us on +44 (0) 1795 580 333 to discuss your options.
To provide individuals working in the specific area of theatre and stage with the knowledge and skills to work safely at height, as well as providing the individual with the ability to rescue fellow technicians from height.
