Working at Height Training Manikins

The Working at Height manikin is constructed to provide extra rigidity and reduce slumping when using a rescue harness. Used globally by Special Rescue teams, Arborists, Health & Safety trainers, Industrial Rescue teams and many more.

An extremely tough manikin for Working at Height training in many industries: Wind Turbines, Telecommunications, Stage and Theatre, Scaffolding, Police & Military, Maritime, Factories & Industry, Fire & Rescue, Cleaning and Maintenance, Construction, Pole Top and Tower Rescues.

Effective, realistic training will help to ensure compliance with the Work at Height Regulations 2005 (UK) by reducing and controlling the risks involved with Working at Height – our manikins can help achieve this.

Features & Benefits

  • Similar in construction to the Duty Range manikins but utilises closed-cell foam to the trunk to provide greater rigidity and reduce ‘slumping’ when using a rescue harness.
  • Tough Polypropylene plastic strips running from the shoulders to the knees (as in the Offshore model) prevents excessive flexing when used aloft.
  • Anatomically correct weight distribution gives the ‘feel’ of an unconscious person – perfect for pole top or tower rescues.
  • Realistic sizes and weights – will demonstrate the difficulties of dealing with an adult unconscious casualty
  • Strong Polypropylene webbing loop to the back allows the manikin to be easily hauled into position prior to training.
  • Strong enough to be dropped from 2 or 3 storeys with no damage – these manikins are tough!
  • The Polyester is water repellent, making it suitable for training in wet or dry conditions as it can be easily cleaned and dried.
  • Soft body joints eliminate the risk of pinch welts and bruising, a common injury when using plastic bodied manikins.
  • Protective consumables including, coveralls and boots, greatly extend the life of the manikin and help save you costs.

*PLEASE NOTE: this manikin does not include a rescue harness. You must provide your own rescue harness for training. 

Product Details

The Working at Height 50Kg adult can be considered to be the industry standard but is also available as a 70Kg version for that extra challenge for rescuers or those who need to comply with IRATA specifications. There is also a lighter version at 30Kg.

These manikins are essentially a combination of our standard Duty range and the Offshore manikins – construction is the same as the Duty models but the inner chest contains polypropylene plastic strips and closed cell foam, which creates a more rigid structure. This chest-like structure helps the manikin to maintain its shape when used in a harness and prevents ‘slumping’.

*PLEASE NOTE: This manikin does not include a rescue harness. You must provide your own rescue harness for training.
