Co-Worker Rescue at Height (CWRH)

Everyone who works at height may be faced with a colleague who has fallen and is hanging helplessly in their fall protection system. The Co-Worker Rescue at Height (CWRH) course teaches participants to deal with that situation. Using simple techniques and industry standard equipment, you will learn how you can free a colleague from a dangerous situation after they have dropped into their fall arrest system.

The rapid release of this trapped person must be your highest priority, to prevent further injury. In accordance with the law on working conditions and the consequent duty of care, an employer is required to prepare employees for this possible scenario. Generally, with a few simple tools, this problem can easy be solved.
