If you need to do this training on a Saturday, please click here for details.

This is a nationally accredited course that covers theoretical and practical aspects of working safely at height. The training is designed to equip workers with the knowledge and skills to safely work in any height situation. No matter what industry you are in, or what state of Australia you are working, if an employer has personnel working where they can fall from one to level to another, and there is a risk of injury, provision is to be made to prevent falls, appropriate equipment is to be made available and appropriate training is to be given.  Please make yourself aware  of the National Workplace Health and Safety Act, and in particular the National Code Of Practice for “Managing the Risks of Falls at the Workplace.

We conduct weekly public Height Safety Training courses at our Guildford Training Centre, located in the centre of Sydney near Parramatta. We can also book in groups of employees on any date as agreed upon, either at our training centre or your site. Please understand that site training requires a suitable practical area, where we can safely access heights to conduct effective training. We will normally conduct a no cost site inspection prior to site training for suitability and safety of all involved.

Our one day Height Safety Course provides students with a sound understanding of how to set up and work safely at height in all situations. The course covers working in fall restraint, working in fall arrest, establishing appropriate anchor points, safe use of ladders, working from scaffolding, working in EWPs, using horizontal static lines, inertia reels and how to conduct a heights rescue. Practical exercises cover the correct fitting of a harness, specific knot tying, setting up rope grabs, conducting a self rescue as well as conducting an overhead rescue of a suspended worker.
