What is the Fall Arrest & Basic Rescue Course?

The skill set of a ‘Fall Arrest Technician‘ includes that of a basic fall arrest technician / fall arrest operator, with the addition of basic rescue skills, to rescue a person from height. Basic rescue skills require a point of safety below, and typically only include lowering of the casualty. A Fall Arrest Technician is a suitable supervisor for a single/small work team that operate where lowering rescues are possible and the fall arrest systems are not of a complex nature.
