Bats: Health and Safety Awareness for Bat Workers Self Study Course
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.
Night work – general hazards
Working outdoors – general hazards
Working in loft voids – hazards, asbestos, insulation
Working at height – ladders, scaffolding and cherry pickers
Driving – at night
Working near roads
Biosecurity – rabies and white nose syndrome
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.
