Who is SA001A - Overhead Safety Awareness training for?
The SA001A - Overhead Safety Awareness course is aimed at Supervisors, Managers Surveyors and planners working on the telecoms network or similar.
What will you learn?
The awareness course is a condensed version of the SA001 course and spans a single day instead of the three-days like the SA001 course. Once you have completed the course, you will have knowledge of the potential risks involved in working safely on ladders and poles when in a telecommunications environment. This also includes the the dangers associated with work of this type and the safety precautions needed to be observed when working on ladders and wooden poles. In addition, you will build an awareness of health and safety and how to be compliant with relevant legislation.
This accreditation ensures that delegates who require an awareness of working with ladders and poles in a telecommunications environment, are suitably trained and accredited to the National Occupational Standard (NOS).
SA001 - Overhead Safety Course
In addition to this awareness course, we also offer the SA001 - Overhead Safety, an awareness course aimed at those who are carrying out installations for telecommunications providers.
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.
