FASET Edge Protection Training
Roof height edge protection systems have been designed and tested by a number of companies over the years, but other than in-house training / familiarisation, there was no way of ensuring the competency of the operatives.
The FASET Training Committee developed this course so that installer companies and site managers can ensure the operatives understand the scope of BS EN 13374: 2013 and can competently understand engineers’ drawings and then install the system to that specification.
The course covers the use of edge protection components, how to interpret drawings and how to install the system to those drawings. The candidates are then required to gain experience on site installing these systems before completing a General Site Assessment (GSA-2) to ensure their competence.
This qualification enables the operative to apply to CSCS for an endorsement to their CSCS Safety Net Rigger Blue Skilled Worker card or, if they are not a safety net rigger, apply to CSCS for a Blue Skilled Worker Operative card. The endorsement / card has a life of 5 years and can be renewed by re-taking the GSA-2.
