Do I require training to carry out working at heights and height rescue? 

The simple answer is YES! Here at Platinum Safety and Training, we make it easy when it comes to helping you decide what training you need in order to maintain a safe and compliant workplace!

As per legislation (law), the work health and safety act 2011 and regulations 2017, states all employers and employees have a duty of care to either eliminate or control potential hazards and risks within the workplace at all times. The hazard of height can be a major concern within many industries and unfortunately, is the cause of a high number of serious injuries and also workplace fatalities. 

Working at heights is simply defined as “if there is a risk of a fall from one level to another, that is likely to cause injury”. With this being said, if you or anyone now work at heights, we need to have the skills and knowledge to ensure everything is being done to create the safest work environment possible. 

Platinum Safety’s nationally recognised training course RIIWHS204D Work safely at heights, have already assisted thousands of workers achieve the required skills and knowledge to maintain a high safety standard within the height industry. 

If workers are using a fall arrest system, meaning they are wearing a harness, connected to an anchor point via a lanyard, however if a fall is still possible, then the worker may be suspended in this system and unable to release themselves. This can create a life threatening situation due to suspension intolerance. This is when blood will pool in the legs due to gravity and the harness restricting the leg. This can result in cardiac arrest and/or brain damage. Due to this risk, it is a law that if we are utilising a fall arrest system as a way to control the hazard of height, then we must implement a tested rescue plan.
