Importance of Safety Construction Licenses

working safely at heights

If you consider the Federal Government statistics for 2018, that there have already been 10 worker deaths in construction year-to date, you can understand the importance of being trained and licensed in construction if you are considering a career in this field. Common safety training courses that employers in construction expect when assessing prospective employees for hiring to work onsite include: Working Safely at Heights and Enter and Work in Confined Space Training.

Construction industry one of Australia’s most dangerous sectors

The construction industry in Australia continues to be one of its biggest employers, offering a vast range of work opportunities, but the downside to this industry is it’s also recognised as one of the most dangerous. As workers are around heavy machinery on a regular basis, as well as in and around trenches, crawl spaces and drainage pipes or up on scaffolding, it’s no wonder that this sectors fatality rate is close to double the national average, sitting third highest in Safe Work Australia’s national statistics.

What’s involved with working safely at heights and confined space training?

Both of these safety construction licenses are intensive but only run for a duration of one day, so even if you are working or have a busy lifestyle you should be able to fit these into your schedule. The Enter and Worked in Confined Spaces training teaches you everything you need to know to plan, enter and work safely in confined spaces, as well as how to exit the space, leaving the area tidy to avoid accidents. With Working Safely at Heights Training you are trained on identifying all work requirements and procedures, accessing and installing equipment and performing work safely at heights, along with tips on cleaning up the area once your work is completed.

If you’re wanting to work in construction you can organise to do your Working Safely at Heights and Enter and Work in Confined Space Training through Elevated Training, a nationally recognised training provider. Find out more by contacting Elevated Training today on (07) 55 245 925.
