The past 12 months have seen some of the biggest changes to climbing safety requirements in recent memory. This free webinar from the Arboricultural Association, HSE and Lantra sets out what has happened, why it has happened, and how it impacts climbing operations for arborists.
We also look at how the training industry itself is required to train to ensure compliance with Work at Height regulations.
HSE explained how they interpreted that the industry was working in a non-compliant way; why changes were needed and how the new guidance was accepted.
The AA covered the extensive work they’ve carried out to develop the second edition of the Industry Code of Practice (ICoP) and the upcoming ‘Technical Guide 1: Tree climbing and aerial rescue’ to create solutions that are workable for the industry.
Lantra explained the impact all of this has had on the training industry and how they have worked with the AA and HSE to ensure the training meets all requirements of this new and updated guidance.
