Best Height Safety Training

If your business requires that some of your employees work at heights, you are putting them at risk unnecessarily without the appropriate height safety training. Learning on the job from other workers isn’t enough because they’ll pick up bad habits and not gain the in-depth knowledge that is essential. Our working at heights training course will provide the required knowledge so that your workers are as safe as you can make them.

We are a registered training organisation, and like all the training we provide, our working at heights safety training is a comprehensive yet flexible course that can be adapted to your company’s needs. It’s delivered by experienced and knowledgeable instructors who will cover all required aspects, both theory and practice. Read More

What our Working at Heights Training provides

Our comprehensive training course gives all participants:

  • knowledge of industry standards, regulations and codes of practice
  • the ability to assess risks, determine their degree and decide how to best control them
  • understanding of the types of height protection equipment, those that are suitable or not appropriate, how to set up and use them correctly and identifying any hazards associated with that equipment
  • competence to work out the solution to common problems and hazards
  • experience in safe working practices and methods to prevent falls, including when on fragile materials
  • the ability to store, inspect and maintain safety equipment so it is always ready for use
  • familiarity with employee and management responsibilities as regards working at height.

We cover all types of equipment, including fall arrest devices and safety equipment, scaffolding and elevated work platforms, describing and illustrating how to set up and use them correctly. We teach safe ladder techniques, emergency procedures that include height rescue methods and dealing with suspension trauma.

Requirements & Outcomes for our Working Safely at Height Training

All participants on this course need to be reasonably physically fit since they will be required to wear harnesses, climb ladders and undertake various other physical activities. They must be able to speak English and have the necessary levels of literacy and numeracy skills to be able to understand and finish the course. Everyone must dress appropriately for physical activities, wearing long trousers and long sleeves plus enclosed shoes or safety footwear.

Everyone who completes the course successfully will receive a Statement of Attainment — RIIWHS204E Work Safely at Heights. This is nationally recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework.

The mixture of classroom theory and practical exercises we provide is intended to ensure all participants have the necessary knowledge to work safely and confidently at height and to make sure that others also comply. For the practical elements of the course, we replicate actual working environments as closely as possible so everyone gains the experience they need.

Every participant’s knowledge and progress are thoroughly assessed so we know they’re gaining sufficient comprehension from the training. The result is that all your employees who work at height will be able to ensure they and others are kept as safe as possible. Not only that, but they’ll be able to do it almost as second nature so it won’t interfere with their working ability and won’t adversely affect their productivity. The job will simply get done properly and safely.
