Working at Heights Refresher (1/2 Day)

About the course

This course refreshes knowledge of identifying where working at heights hazards and fall hazards exist. It is for those who have completed the Working at Heights unit standards.

Where there is a fall risk, an employer is responsible to ensure that staff are trained on how to work safely and use the equipment according to manufacturer and WorkSafe best practice guidelines.

Our Working at Heights course teaches both the theoretical and practical knowledge required plus awareness of height specific hazards. It provides participants with the knowledge and awareness of hazards at working at heights, set-up requirements and the impact that appropriate fall arrest systems have on improving workplace safety. The course is specifically written to include the contents of NZQA unit standards.

1 day, 2 day and refresher course options can be selected based upon your specific requirements
