What goes up, must be safe

Working at heights

Working Safely at Heights is an important ticket to have when you’re looking to work in the logistics, resources and infrastructure industries.

It’s very common to associate this ticket with working on building and construction sites where your job may include stepping up on ladders, roofs and scaffolding.

But there are also many other occupations such as painters, decorators and window cleaners where you could be at risk of falling from heights.

To comply with Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations and obtain a license to work in these professions, it is essential to undertake the appropriate training.

Failure to hold a current licence when working in such conditions can have you facing prosecution, a hefty WHS fine of up to $20,000 – or worse – serious or fatal workplace injuries.

Your safety is paramount, and if you don’t have the right training under your belt, it’s simply not worth the risk.

Workplace Training

Prior to gaining work in the logistics, manufacturing and mining industries you are required to obtain a certain level of training in order to be appropriately qualified.

Whether it’s a forklift ticket or licensing for working at heights – your training is crucial to being able to work onsite, fulfil the role and to carry out daily tasks in a safe manner.

But the need to undergo training doesn’t stop when you’ve got your ticket and your job.

Under Australian legislation, it is up to the employer to provide refresher training as part of their duty of care to ensure that the skills of staff working on site are up-to-date.

Annual training is the best way to consistently ensure equipment is being used safely and that all workers are complying with workplace health and safety (WHS) regulations.

For employers, Elevated Training can provide group refresher training (Verification of Competency) to validate staffs’ abilities to undertake the responsibilities of their roles.

It can be quite a burden for routine operations and production schedules when workers are continually pulled out for days at a time in order to complete licencing or refresher training courses.

Fortunately, Elevated Training is focused on providing tailored training solutions that don’t disrupt your site’s normal workflow.

We deliver forklift licencing and forklift refresher courses onsite to avoid having production shut down all together.

Elevated Training can come to your workplace and provide onsite training for up to 30 employees and we can design a rolling session between various locations if your workplace operates from more than one site.

Workplace training aligns the timing of when your coworkers require refresher training in the years to come, and is also a great way of ensuring all staff have the same level of understanding when it comes to high risk work and safety procedures for the worksite.
