We all know how super important safety is when working at heights. Proper training is mandatory for your workers to safely carry out any work duties at any height above 2m, or 3m for the housing construction industry. Whether you are working with ladders, an elevated platform, scaffolding or anything else, working at heights training is required. Link Resources offer comprehensive working at heights training all over Australia including the Sunshine Coast which will cover all the aspects required to work safely and confidently at heights.
Why You Need Safety Training for Heights
One of the major causes of serious injury in the workplace is falling from heights. This is still one of the major factors in fatalities too, so being prepared and knowing the protocols for doing any kind of work at heights is crucial. Knowing how to operate different types of safety items like harnesses, fall arrest systems and anchor systems can save your life and all these systems and more are covered in our course in Warana on the Sunshine Coast, QLD.
Proper safety training is not only a mandatory requirement, but it’s a worthwhile and beneficial one too. Not only for your staff that attend the course but also the company too. Properly trained staff are way less likely to have an accident, which can lead to injury, investigation and loss of productivity, so having all your staff qualified in this area will actually increase your productivity in the long run.
