Working at Heights Training
RIIWHS204E Work Safely at Heights
The Working at Heights course is a one day (8 hour) height safety training program that deals with Personal Protective 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 program we always make sure students are given adequate time to become familiar with their equipment & get hands on experience; 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.
The first part of the day is theoretical and covers:
- Relevant industry bodies
- WHS legislation, codes of practice & standards
- Risk management considerations (ISO 31000:2009)
- The hierarchy of fall protection options (AS 1891)
- Forces relating to falling & anchors
- Equipment checking, fitting and maintenance
- Harness Hang Syndrome and an insight into 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 relevant to their work environment.
Successful participants receive an ASQA approved Statement of Attainment that fulfils the requirements of RIIWHS204E Work Safely at Heights which is provided by PACI (RTO ID 2808).
A comprehensive student manual is supplied, as well as all equipment required to complete the training outside what the student group may already have.
