Safe Work at Heights Refresher Training – 1 Day

Although there is no expiry date for your “Safe Work at Heights” ticket, the national WHS Act requires PCBUs to prove currency of training of their workers (employees or contractors).  Many larger companies typically will have a policy, if the certification is older than 2 years, it will not be accepted onsite.  So you should consider conducting refresher training on a regular basis, and we suggest that you do not exceed three yearly.

With refresher training for heights you will be re issued a new statement of attainment with the following units of competency issued through RTO Safety Training:
