Do I need working at heights training?
Falls are a major cause of death and serious injury in Australian workplaces. Fall hazards are found when carrying out common tasks in the installation and maintenance of a telecommunication service.  In the telecommunication industry falls can also occur at ground level into open holes, for example trenches, manholes or service pits. Falls can also occur at height, causing serious injury or death.

This course has been developed to comply with the Australian Work Health and Safety Regulations. This course is designed to provide training in relation to the risks involved in the workplace and provides safe work procedures when working at heights and on roofs.

This nationally recognised course follows the code’s of practice in ‘Managing the risk of fall at workplaces’ and, ‘Preventing falls in housing construction’ & construction work, and covers  both the theoretical and practical aspects of working at height.

It is focused on fall prevention rather than fall arrest. This course is designed to deliver the ‘best practices’, to assist the telecommunication industry workforces when working at the customers premise for residential and commercial installation & maintenance tasks. This training  is designed to equip workers with the knowledge and skills needed to work safely and to Australian standards in any height situation.

This training covers risk assessment, selection and correct use of equipment, rigging and anchor systems, fall restraint, work positioning and fall arrest systems.

The Working At Heights ( WAH) course  will require you to participate in physical practical exercises.
