Overview

Falls from height are one of the most frequent causes of worker deaths. The Safe Work at Height course provides the skills and knowledge required by those whose work exposes them to the risk of a fall. The course covers techniques to both avoid the risk of falls and, where this is not possible, to minimise their consequence. The course introduces the basic personal protective equipment required when working at height and foundation skills such as anchor selection, work restraint and use of fall arrest systems. The Save Working at Heights element is followed by the Co-Worker Rescue at Height element. Everyone who works at height may be faced with a colleague who has fallen and is hanging helplessly in their fall protection system. The Co-Worker Rescue at Height (CWRH) course teaches participants to deal with that situation. Using simple techniques and industry standard equipment, you will learn how you can free a colleague from a dangerous situation after they have dropped into their fall arrest system.
