Height Safety Equipment Inspector Course - Course Dates
Height Safety Equipment Inspector Course
THE UNIT COMPETENCY ISSUED FOR THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN UPGRADED, THE UNIT IS NOW “MEM15004 Perform inspection” . Unfortunately this new unit now has pre-requisite units which are MEM11011 Undertake manual handling, MEM13015 Work safely and effectively in manufacturing and engineering & MEM16006 Organise and communicate information. Due to these additional units being required for accreditation, it is no longer viable for Sydney Safety to offer this course. The last training date will be in September 2019.
This is a 4 hour hands on training programme. Personnel identified for this training, must have already completed a nationally recognised “Safe Working at Heights” course as a pre-requisite to our Height Safety Equipment Inspector training course. All items of safety equipment in use, such as harnesses, lanyards, fall arrest devices, rope grabs, inertia reels, tripods & rope rescue devices are required to be inspected on a regular basis as detailed in AS/NZS 1891.4: 2009 Section 9.1 by a Height Safety Equipment Inspector. The summary of inspection frequency is:
|All safety equipment on site||By the user before and after use|
|Harnesses, Lanyards, Fall Arrest Devices Ropes and slings||6 monthly inspection by a height safety inspector|
|Anchorages – drilled in type or frame attached||12 monthly inspection|
* note equipment used in harsh conditions, more frequent inspections required, usually half suggested interval
Sydney Safety Training Equipment Safety Inspector training is not based around manufacturer specific product, nor is it intended to usurp manufacturer provided training; it is aimed at ensuring that organisations are capable of inspecting specific equipment to ensure it is safe to operate and use. Sydney Safety Training training will always highlight that any faults or concerns related to safe operation and use of equipment needs to be addressed in many cases by referring back to the manufacturer of that particular product. This is an inherent component of the training. Sydney Safety Training training is based around Australian Standards and provided by Certificate IV trainers/assessors with extensive industry experience and where appropriate in accordance with Nationally accredited Units of Competency re equipment inspection criteria and of course as previously pointed out this will include reference to manufacturer based guidance. If an organisation wishes to be certified by a manufacturer to service the manufacturers equipment/product in accordance with the manufacturers specifications, they technically should be trained by that particular manufacturer or manufacturers agent to do so. We will cover the inspection and tagging of: harnesses, lanyards & associated equipment including fall arrest devices & rope grabs. It will cover inspection criteria of webbing, snap hooks, karabiners, D-rings, Buckles, Adjusters, Sewing and Ropes. It will include the creation of an appropriate inspection tag, and the creation of an inspection maintenance record as required by AS1891.4:2009 Section 9.
This course is conducted monthly and takes approx 4 hours.
