FASET Safety Net Repair Course

Safety Net training - FASET courses

This course provides knowledge on how to repair knotless safety nets in the line with FASET guidance  

Safety nets may be repaired by a competent person who has completed a recognised training course within the past 5 years – a recognized training course is a FASET Net Repair Training Certificate. For many years this has been the domain of manufacturers where similar, yet different techniques made it difficult for net owners to identify one approved method to repair their own nets. Manufacturers training has focused on the method of repair and not dealt with wider issues such as net examination, types and causes of damage, fleet management and record keeping. The FASET course addresses these topics. 

FASET have agreed with all manufacturers operating in the UK on one standard repair and this is what GAPRIE teaches.

Successful trainees will be able to: 

  • Understand how safety nets work and their typical applications 
  • Put together and operate a net maintenance program 
  • identify damage and carry out permanent repairs correctly 

All successful trainees will be provided with FASET Reference Notes, 5-year Attendance Certificate & FASET Registration

Course Content: 

  • Legislation and standards 
  • Parts of a safety net and the way it works 
  • Typical causes & results of damage 
  • Tagging and logging in line with standards 
  • Test (practical tuition) 
  • Assessment and feedback 

Wherever possible clients are encouraged to bring nets they own that need repairing to the course. These are then used during the training.  They should also bring manufacturers recommended repair material.
