Height Safety

WorkCover is concerned to ensure that all site personnel have been properly trained when working at height. Skillvance is able to prepare and deliver safety courses in height safety awareness which relate to the particular activities and equipment likely to be used by employees in on-site activities. This will vary according to the trades or work activities to be undertaken and usually takes half a day. The course will always include reference to relevant legislation related to height safety issues. Practical activities are included where appropriate, to promote confident use of equipment under site conditions. Records are retained of participants and each receives a statement at the satisfactory completion of the course. This not a Nationally accredited course, which is longer and is available through an associate – we will refer you if this is the appropriate course for you.

Topics may be tailored to participants however they are likely to include the following :

  • Legislative Requirements
  • Height Safety Equipment
  • Ladder Safety
  • Assessing Height Safety Risk
  • Fitting Personal Protective Equipment (Safety Harness)
  • Identify a rescue plan
