FASET STEP for Managers

FASET – Stair Tower & Edge Protection for Managers (STEP)

This course is for health and safety advisers, site managers, project managers and Temporary Works Coordinators. For the control and management of installation & inspection. Furthermore it is a requirement for S.T.E.P. systems to be inspected every seven days or following adverse weather conditions. Consequently those responsible for controlling work at height need to be aware of the standards for S.T.E.P. and industry good practice. This can be costly if an independent company is used. Therefore considerable savings can be made if these inspections are carried out in house.

Learning Outcomes

Candidates will have the knowledge to plan and manage the installation of S.T.E.P. Identify faults and specify a remedial action to mitigate those risks. You will understand what to expect from contractors prior to work commencing. 


The course can be held at our centre, on-site, or at your premises, a suitable classroom is a necessity.
