  4. Height Safety Advanced Webinar [Hybrid Training]

Delivered by webinar and accessible from anywhere in New Zealand, this course supports attendees in gaining a comprehensive understanding of the legal requirements and management of proprietary height safety systems and procedures. Theory element only.

This webinar covers the theory element of the selection and inspection of various fall arrest systems and relevant ropes and knots. We cover hazards associated with scaffolds, mobile elevated work platforms, ladders, guardrails, walkways, ramps and stairways. It builds all the required foundation knowledge to complete the practical element of Height Safety Advanced, which includes practical scenarios to ensure you understand the use, installation and disestablishment of proprietary height safety systems, anchor points, work positioning, restraint systems and developing and implementing a rescue plan. 

This webinar covers theory only. Due to the requirements of the associated unit standard, attendees will not be awarded a unit standard until they have completed an accompanying practical session. Hybrid training allows the attendee more control over the time required to achieve the unit standard by allowing them to break up the theory and practical elements. The practical component must be booked within 12 months of completing the theoretical component, and the cost indicated here covers both elements of the training.

In accordance with the requirements to maintain Consent to Assess for the unit standards taught on this course, Safety ‘n Action had this course pre moderated and approved by our standard setting body, The Skills Organisation.

Students need to have 3 months of work experience in the industry prior to doing the course.
