Protective Coatings Application - Unit 1.11: Basic Access Requirements (inc fall protection)

Objective: To understand the Health and Safety implications for basic access requirements to the protective coatings applicator.

  • The protective coatings applicator will use different forms of access during their duties.
  • The protective coatings applicator should know the basic access requirements when preparing and painting.
  • The protective coatings applicator is not a scaffolder and as such should not attempt to move any access unless supervised or specifically trained.

This training unit is a basic review on access as the employer will train their employees on access and access types, depending upon the type of organisation, location of works and country of work. Specific training for working at height such as working over water etc. is not covered.
