Tower Climbing & Rescue Training
ICTTCR203 – Use safe rigging practices to climb and perform rescues on telecommunications network structures
The Tower Climbing & Rescue training course is a two day (16 hour) introductory course covering one of the more advanced sectors of industrial work at height.
If you require a standard height safety course for working at heights, please see either our Working at Heights course for industrial situations, or our Height Safety Training for Natural Surfaces course if you work on cliff faces or steep embankments.
Modern steel truss towers and masts used for telecommunications, aerial ropeways, high voltage transmission lines and a host of other tasks present significant issues to the worker who must ascend them and, in the event of mishap, rescue or be rescued from them.
Our tower training is contextualised to the student’s place of work and job focus. The main aim of the program is to be as relevant to the student’s tower climbing requirements as possible, with systems and techniques that are specific to their everyday situation.
During the program we will cover:
- Relevant WHS legislation and standards
- Tower PPE inspection and maintenance
- Harness fitting and use of tower specific lanyard assemblies
- Single person work positioning anchors
- Steel climbing skills
- Rope based assisted abseil descent from a tower structure
- Pre rigged ‘lift & lower’ rescue systems
- Angulated ‘skate block’ rescue systems
- Introduction to trauma management & Harness Hang Syndrome.
Please note that if you are already qualified to climb towers, you may just want to participate in the second day of this course which is also known as the Tower Rescue training course. This is the ideal course for those needing to refresh their qualification.
Successful participants receive an ASQA approved Statement of Attainment that fulfils the requirements of ICTTCR203 – Use safe rigging practices to climb and perform rescues on telecommunications network structures which is provided by PACI (RTO ID 2808).
