Heights Rescue Operator - 1 Day - Course Dates

Heights Rescue Operator – 1 Day

A person conducting a business or undertaking who implements a fall-arrest system as a measure to control risk must establish emergency and rescue procedures

The procedures must be tested so that they are effective. Workers must be provided with suitable and adequate information, instruction and training in relation to the emergency procedures.

This one day programme is designed to complement the “Safe Work at Heights” course.  On that course you were instructed regarding the need for a rescue system, and should have either participated or observed an overhead rescue take place.  On this course we provide you with training in numerous heights rescue systems, and have you physically participate in a practical rescue scenarios using each of these systems.  By the end of the day, you will be competent to implement a heights safety rescue procedure on your work site.

Typical rescue scenarios:

  • EWP Self Rescue using an AUTO descender system
  • OVERHEAD rescue using a GOTCHA  & ROLLGLIS rescue kits
  • POLE TOP rescue, using a Gotcha Pole Top Rescue Kit

Having rescued a work mate, we must assume that as a result of the fall, that person has suffered an injury.  Therefore you must be able to provide first and aid and CPR at the scene.
