Course Details

Working Safely at Heights is a one-day course offered by Harness to provide the skills and knowledge you need to work safely from heights.

Working from heights is a requirement for a number of industries. Whether you are an employee in the gas sector or an assistant in an agribusiness, the chances are you will at some stage undertake work from a height.

However, falls are a major hazard that can lead to serious injury and even death. Fall hazards are found in a number industries and includes undertakings such as working on a roof to accessing a silo. Even ground level work can include fall hazards, with holes, trenches and pits exposing workers to danger.

As such, workers need to have the right skills and experience to ensure that safety measures are not only in place but are also followed.

Why is a heights safety important?

When it comes to safety at heights, the benefits seem quite obvious. However, this has not stopped injuries and deaths from heights occurring.

For individuals in operational roles, which require them to work from a height, having the right skills and experience in safety at heights is essential. Whether you are in the construction, energy or mining sector, attending a heights course can make sure you do not replicate the behaviours that can lead to major injuries.

There are a number of factors that can influence the likelihood of an injury for those working from heights. Some of these can include a failure to plan adequately and poor risk assessment.

Learning Outcomes

Alongside the safety benefits of completing a work safely at heights course, participants will leave with a statement of attainment relating to the standard RIIWHS204D (Current).

With this, workers will not only understand what they need to do to stay safe, but also have a passport to employment.

Program Benefits

At Harness, we understand that the risk of a fall is a serious concern. In response, our heights training courses focuses on transferring the skillset needed for individuals working safely at heights.

Why should I use Harness to ensure safety at heights?

Harness’ focus on best practice, and its experience in the oil and gas industry, has instilled a desire to always be better than what is expected. When it comes to height safety, this focus can ensure that workers have the necessary expertise to successfully and safely undertake work from heights.

So what separates us from the rest, other than our long-term experience in high-risk industries? Well for one, we have the best, most experienced trainers in the business. While a large swathe of people can attain the qualifications needed to be a trainer, Harness has a strict threshold for whom it takes on.

Our trainers have served for long periods in some of the toughest industries, gaining valuable experience and honing their skills. The passion and desire they show to their work translates into valuable learning opportunities for participants in our heights safety courses.

 

Learning Methods

The mode of delivery for this course is face to face in a classroom environment as well as significant practical elements outside of the classroom.

Alongside our deeply experienced and passionate trainers, Harness has cutting edge technology that can replicate the conditions encountered when working from a height. With major simulators in both Toowoomba and Brisbane, we have both the technology and the experience to ensure that participants leave our course with all they require.

Course Content

What will I learn from the Harness working safely at heights course?

When you sign up for our working safely at heights training course, we believe that you should leave with everything you need to work safely from heights. To accomplish this we focus on three key elements:

  • First and foremost, the curriculum is based around the goal of imparting the right level of theoretical understanding behind working from a height. What this means is learning about the correct best practice systems and processes that ensure a safe approach to undertaking work while at heights.
  • A core part of the curriculum focuses on the identification of hazards. From physical inspections to task and process analysis, our trainers use their extensive experience in hazard assessment to guide participants. Essential to this is understanding a hazard’s flow-on effects and how an individual’s behaviour may increase or decrease the likelihood of a fall.
  • Alongside assessment, participants will also learn how to eliminate, isolate and minimise risks associated with significant fall hazards. This means understanding the essential safety equipment and how to engage with it properly. Whether it’s learning how to correctly use total restraint systems or implement a personal fall minimisation method, our working at heights training course can be the difference between life and death.
