Course Details

For the Working Safely at Heights Course, trainees must have adequate English language skills to safely complete tasks relating to working at heights, such as being able to:

  • Read and correctly interpret safe work method statements and height safety equipment specifications
  • Complete required documentation relevant to working safely at heights, including completing risk assessments
  • Speak English clearly in order to explain, describe and verify sometimes complex needs and issues

If a trainee is concerned that they may not have the capabilities described above, please contact WAM Training on 1800 143 343 for advice.

Once competence is achieved, trainees will receive a Statement of Attainment and Proof of Training Card.

  • A maximum of 12 trainees can attend this course
  • Trainees should wear safety shoes (and hi-vis clothing if they can)
  • For identification, trainees should bring a driver’s licence or passport
  • This course is delivered over 1 day face-to-face with a blend of classroom-based and practical activities
  • Trainees are expected to have read the Working Safely at Heights Course Handbook prior to attendance which will be provided upon making a booking
  • Trainees will be assessed using a short-answer test and a practical assessment involving the use of height safety equipment to work at height
  • Verbal assessments will not be conducted for this course (please refer to the Language, Literacy and Numeracy requirements outlined above)

Australian Standard 1891 Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices requires that individuals undergo reassessment at appropriate intervals. Essentially, your employer needs to have a policy outlining how often refresher training needs to be done (based on their risk assessment).

The best thing to do is send through your policies and procedures covering how the particular area is accessed (and a few photos can be helpful too). The area must have rated and within-test-date anchorage points and must require persons accessing the area to wear a harness.

This is so that we can make sure that our Trainer is safe, and also so that our Trainer is familiar with the processes that your business follows. We can also flag any differences between your processes and our course content, so that contradictions can be resolved prior to course commencement.
