FASET Platform Training

FASET Platform Installer Course

Platform decking systems are becoming the most popular way of dealing with height safety issues for those carrying out work activities in high fall risk areas, typically roofers and flooring contractors. They provide fall prevention and a safe working platform, therefore enabling the end user to work in complete safety without the risk of falling from height.

FASET Platform Decking Managers Course

The FASET Platform Decking Managers Course is for the site manager. Understanding the limitations of individual systems is key to managing the decking systems on-site. Consequently, it will enable site managers to inspect platform decking systems and manage their use on-site.


The FASET platform installer course is designed for operatives. However, it would also suit anyone who wishes to learn how to install platform decking. This FASET course covers the planning, installation and practical issues surrounding the correct use of platform decking on site.


The course starts in a classroom environment. The theory session includes technical information, legislation and the relevant standards to platform decking. Following the presentation, you receive hands-on training with the G&M Safe Deck system. As a result of this training, you will be able to plan for and install platform decking using the manufacturers instruction manual, understanding its limitations and industry good practice.

Following the practical you will be GSA4 assessed. Your skills will be measured against a set standard. Following this you will, providing you pass the assessment, be able to apply for the Blue CSCS card. If unsuccessful, you will be advised to gain additional experience. Following this you can be re assessed.


The course is delivered at our training centre in Cheshire. We will advise on the suitability of away from the centre location.

What our clients think

Phil Smith, Plant Manager, Domis Construction

We are delighted to work with G&M Safe Deck to create our own decking. Being able to produce their own system in our company colours and apply our brand was really important to us to enable us to raise our own brand awareness on site. The process was simple and working with the G&M team was an enjoyable experience.

Jake Iles, Health & Safety Advisor, Gleeson Homes

Making the move from our previous fall protection method of soft landing bags over to safety decking was made so much easier by the guidance and assistance from the team at G&M.  It’s great to be able to pick up the phone and speak with a familiar face who understands the company’s needs as opposed to having to deal with different people on a regular basis. As a result we have a good working relationship with G&M, and an robust decking system in place on site.
