  4. Height Safety Introduction Webinar [Hybrid Training]

Delivered by webinar and accessible from anywhere in New Zealand, this course helps attendees understand the legal requirements, systems and procedures to conduct work safely at height.

This webinar covers the theory element of the selection and use of different types of fall arrest equipment. 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 elements of Height Safety Introduction, which involves a number of practical scenarios including fall arrest, work positioning, restraint systems and developing 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.
