This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to work safely on construction sites where the worker has the potential to fall from one level to another.
This unit of competency does not cover the erection of scaffold or work platforms, but it does include identifying and reporting common faults with scaffold or work platform systems.
Work at heights is undertaken in a range of construction work, including new construction, renovation, refurbishment and maintenance.
This unit also applies to workers in other industries who need to control the two separate risks associated with people and objects falling from heights.
Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
To demonstrate competency in this unit, a candidate must meet the elements and performance criteria by working safely at heights above 2 m on three occasions, using different fall protection equipment/devices on each occasion.
One occasion must include a restraint technique (anchor point) system with a minimum of three anchor points.
The candidate must access the work area, traverse between anchor points and exit from the work area.
