Who said Health and Safety Training is boring!

The aim of the Tower Crane Rescue Training was to enhance the awareness of the Buxton site management team, comprising Ian Flannery, Vic Addis, and Colin Moorcroft, and to develop their new and existing skills. It also served as a reminder of their roles and responsibilities within the workplace, particularly focusing on safe systems of work in relation to working at height on cranes.


The course covered the correct systems of work required to prevent falls when working at height and, when prevention is not possible, the types of fall protection equipment needed in the workplace to retrieve or recover incapacitated individuals.




The practical elements of the course were demonstrated in a light-hearted yet informative manner.

Upon successful completion of the course, the team has gained additional understanding in the following areas:


  • Legislation and guidelines covering working at height, including working on various towers and structures.

  • Understanding of collective protection systems.

  • Knowledge on the use of fall protection equipment, including both the theoretical and practical aspects of wearing a harness and using lanyards.

  • Awareness of how to survey for suitable anchorage points, in accordance with relevant standards.
