Overview

The SA001 accreditation covers three modules over a three day course:

  • Ladder safety
  • Pole checking and climbing
  • Joint user poles

What will you learn?

The SA001 course provides learners with the knowledge and skills of the hazards and potential risks involved in working safely on ladders and wooden poles in a telecommunications environment. It also helps learners’ awareness of compliance with health and safety legislation. The accreditation tests learners’ knowledge, skills and understanding of dangers associated with these works and the safety precautions required while working on ladders and wooden poles.

This accreditation ensures that leaners involved in working on ladders and poles are suitably trained and accredited to the National Occupational Standard (NOS). This accreditation is aimed at those working on ladders and wooden poles in a telecommunications environment.

This accreditation does not cover roof top working.

Streetworks

Please be aware the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) requires at least one person on site to hold a Street Works card to work on the highway.

This Smart Awards accreditation is based on a pre-requisite that any work on the highway requires appropriate Street Works accreditation to be held by an individual working on site, and that this individual is qualified to check that the planned provision of footways, traffic lanes and safety zones determined by the site survey meets with the requirements of the site location and approved procedures and practices required by the NRSWA 1991.

Some companies’ policies may vary where more than one person on site is required to hold a valid Street Works card.
