The ABTT and HSE have produced safe working methods for the use of Tallescopes. These require:
It is also explicitly stated to be essential that personnel using Tallescopes have completed Tallescope Training.
Our Safe Use of Tallescopes training course is a practical course to bring candidates up to speed with ABTT guidelines and teach safe procedure when using a Tallescope.
We often run this alongside our Tallescope Rescue training course as combined training.
The course is designed for anyone required to use Tallescopes in the theatre and production environment.
Candidates will develop the skills and knowledge to assemble, perform pre-use checks on, and use Tallescopes. They will gain an understanding of relevant legislation.
Please Note: We cannot teach candidates to safely move an occupied Tallescope if your venue has a raked stage.
Successful candidates will receive an RB Health & Safety Solutions Safe Use of Tallescopes certificate and ID card valid for five years.
