We teach building access

For anyone wishing to work on scaffolding or other structures used for work at height, the Centre for Staff Training ERGON organises building access training. With us, you can be sure to learn everything you need to know both in theory and in practice. Climbing work requires increased safety measures, which is why a course in this area is so necessary. 

Features of our training facility  

We are trusted by many companies specialising in the use of equipment requiring certification. Our instructors are people with many years of experience in the industry and know their stuff. Classes are conducted in a way that engages the trainees. This also makes the trainees better able to remember theoretical issues and apply them in practice. We use materials that we make available to our trainees so that they can refer to them at home. We use modern equipment in our training rooms and for practical exercises. All this translates into success for our learners on the exam. 

Who is the course aimed at? 

A mountaineering licence for construction access will be necessary for workers who move on ladders, platforms, hoists or scaffolding. The course will also be useful for those working on trusses and masts. Such people are usually involved in the construction and roofing industry, but not exclusively. If you work or are about to start working in industries such as photovoltaics, telecommunications, electrical engineering or installing mobile network installations, you will find our training topics useful. 

How do I start the course? 

Several requirements must be met in order to take the training course. The most important is that there are no health contraindications that could exclude the potential trainee from working at height. The participant must also be at least eighteen years old and have at least an elementary school education.  

What the training looks like 

In our classes, we cover both theoretical and practical issues. As a result, students learn about all topics in their full scope. Topics include learning about legal standards for health and safety at work. We also discuss how to select and control equipment, as well as the characteristics of the work. In addition to this, participants learn what the fall rate is, what personal protective equipment is, and how to transport materials and tools. An important issue is belaying and learning techniques for rescue. Learning about fall prevention is also one of the topics covered in the class. The range of topics can be adapted to your needs in the case of closed training, for workplaces.

How much does the course cost?

Once you have outlined your specific guidelines, we will endeavour to provide you with an initial quote. 

Safety first - course objectives 

When working at height, it is essential to take appropriate safety precautions. It is important to remember that any oversight, even a minor one, can lead to tragedy. A fall from a great height can result in permanent damage to health. There are also many fatalities, so risks at the workplace are absolutely not advisable. The employer should ensure the safety of his subordinates and provide them with the means to do so. In addition to work clothes, employees must be trained and this is what our centre makes possible. With us, you can be sure that, based on your occupational safety, you will pass the exam and receive the appropriate authorisations to work at height. We invite you to mountaineering training from building access to the ERGON Centre for Staff Development! Contact us via our phone number or email address - these are listed on our website.
