RIIWHS204E Work safely at heights

Course Objective

Many wrongly assume that working at heights means working on high, multi-storey buildings. However, such dangerous situations and resulting injuries can occur at heights as low as two metres. It is therefore imperative that a working at heights course is completed regardless of the height of the platform you are working on.

Guided by legislation, the aim of this course is to teach all issues related to working at heights, so that participants can be equipped with an understanding of all the requirements and procedures. This course will help participants comply and adhere to all workplace health and safety (WHS) procedures.

With its focus on risk assessment and safety, this course will allow participants to feel comfortable and confident to work at heights – and be able to react if any dangers were to occur.
