Essential Training for Working at Heights

For any workplace that requires workers to work at heights including using ladders

Employers have a duty to ensure their workplace is safe, and this means controlling the risk of falls from any height. Analysis has shown that the risk of injury from a fall increases significantly for falls from two metres or more. The prevention forms part of the WH&S regulations which applies when there is a risk of a fall from one level to another.

Typical falls that cause death and injury include those resulting from:
  • Using unsafe or incomplete scaffolds
  • Inappropriate ladders/ladder use
  • Falling from or through roofs
  • Falls from trucks
  • Falls into holes, pits or shafts
  • Accessing shelving
  • Accessing mezzanine areas

Falling from height is the major cause of fatalities in the construction industry.

Over 50% of all falls from a height of 2 metres or more result in death or serious injury. All such deaths and injuries are preventable.

We have a range of nationally accredited courses for working with heights covering virtually every training requirement in this area
