Working at Heights Training

RIIWHS204D Work Safely at Heights

The Working at Heights training course is a one day (8 hour) height safety training course that deals with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) based fall protection systems. This nationally recognised working at heights training program can be run at either our purpose built height safety training centre or at the student’s place of work.

As with all of Safety Access & Rescue’s courses, each Working at Heights training course is contextualised to the student’s occupational situation.  In addition, during this fall protection training students are given time to become familiar with their equipment; this means that participants return to the workplace more confident and able to start work immediately.

If you are interested in working at heights in a natural environment, please have a look at our Height Safety Training for Natural Surfaces course.

Course Outline
The first part of the day is theoretical and covers:

  • Industry bodies
  • Standards and legislation
  • Risk management implications (ASISO31000:2009)
  • The hierarchy of fall protection options (AS 1891)
  • Forces
  • Equipment checking, fitting and maintenance
  • Harness Hang Syndrome and the range of fall protection devices available to the height worker today.

Then, and this is integral to the success of this course, the students look at, and practice, a range of post fall rescue techniques, casualty management and emergency procedures.
