This course deals with the requirements for working at heights required by Health Safety and Welfare Act and Regulations (SA), Australian Standards for fall arrest, height systems and other ancillary equipment, and other specified workplace requirements.

This is an accredited unit of competency from the Metalliferous Mining National Training package. Fire Training and Safety Services is a Registered Training Organisation and a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment will be available for the successful participants in this course.

During this course a variety of equipment (and proprietary brands) will be utilised both individually and as part of systems of work. Emphasis is given to the appropriate selection, fitting and maintenance of the individual pieces of equipment, the inspection and maintenance requirements of equipment associated with these works, and the systems developed to incorporate equipment. Both theory and practical applications in setting up appropriate work systems will be carried out.
