About the course

This GWO Working at Height & Manual Handling Refresher course is a one day course that re-validates a current and in date GWO Working at Height certificate.

Course Aims

Hosted at our purpose-built training facility in Winchester, Hampshire, this course reviews elements from the initial two-day course but is highly practical and focuses on safety-critical areas. Any current safety issues or recent alerts will be discussed bringing the candidate up to date with changing legislation and operational procedures.

Blended Learning Approach

The theoretical elements of Safer at Work courses have now moved online as e-Learning modules. This allows you to study flexibly, at your own pace and from the comfort of your own home or the office. Support and assistance will be available from the instructor delivering this course.
