What is this course about?

This nationally recognised course covers theoretical and practical aspects of working at height.

During the course we will assist you to develop safe work method statements and risk assessments for working at height. All workers who conduct or supervise tasks whilst at height will find this course beneficial to workplace safety. This course will enable you to comply with current WHS legislation with successful trainees receiving a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment.

Training can be conducted at your work site or off-site at one of our purpose built training facilities. Work at heights training is focused on fall prevention rather than fall arrest. It is designed to equip workers with the knowledge and skills to safely work in any height situation, primarily being aimed at general construction, maintenance, mining, large factories or other work situations where work is conducted in a place where a fall from one level to another is possible.

The RIIWHS204D – Working Safely at Heights course covers all practical elements for working safely at heights including hazard reporting, harness inspection and use of anchor points. When working at heights it’s important to know how to prevent yourself, and others, from heights related injury.

Did you know?

Between 2003 and 2015, 359 workers were killed following a fall from a height—11% of all workers killed over this period. Half of these falls involved falling three metres or less.

Who should do it?

Anyone who is involved in construction, as chances are you have or will be working at heights and need to be able to do so safely.

How will undertaking this course benefit you?

Being qualified to work at heights puts you in a leadership position within your organisation, and provides you with the qualification to back up your experience as a building and construction industry professional.
