Course Description

As part of gaining a bat licence it is important to be aware of health and safety issues involved with bat work and how to reduce risks. In this course we will cover some of the most common hazards and risks associated with undertaking bat surveys. This course aims to raise your awareness of the risks of certain activities and how to keep yourself safe.

This self-study course will be split into 3 modules. An overview of these modules and what will be covered in each one is outlined below. As this is only an awareness course, we would encourage you to look into more thorough training on topics that you think may be particularly relevant to you in your job but we do provide a lot of useful video links to add to your learning.

Module 1:

  • Night work – general hazards
  • Lone working
  • Working outdoors – general hazards

Module 2:

  • Working in loft voids – hazards, asbestos, insulation
  • Working at height – ladders, scaffolding and cherry pickers
  • Driving – at night

Module 3:

  • Working near roads
  • Biosecurity – rabies and white nose syndrome
  • Risk Assessments

Timings:

The course will be available for 4 weeks but all the modules will be sent at the beginning of the course so you can do them at your own pace - maybe do them all at once or spread them over and do one a week.

This is what some of our students have said about our online courses:

‘The [habitat management] course is certainly paying off as I’m currently managing woodlands as part of the graduate development programme with the FC. I’m about to apply for the membership with the Institute of Chartered Foresters and thought of attaching this certificate!’

‘Thank you for the course, I found it very interesting and definitely improved my knowledge of the fundamentals of habitat management.’
