Did you know that Investigations by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment into falls while working at height show that more than 50 percent of falls are from less than three metres and approximately 70 percent of falls are from ladders and roofs? The cost of these falls is estimated to be $24 million a year – to say nothing of the human cost as a result of these falls.

Applies to:

If you're supervising others work at height using and setting up a fall arrest system it is important that you have the correct training to perform the task safely and understand the risks involved. Our training course will provide you with the knowledge and hands on experience to ensure that you understand your responsibilities and have the skills to work safely at height.

NZQA unit standards include

US 23229 Use safety harness system while working at height (4 credits)

US 15757 Use, install and disestablish temporary proprietary height safety systems when working at height (4 credits)



All harness work requires training and competence and only trained and competent personnel can install and use harness systems on site. Persons not trained should be inducted by the system installer or other qualified persons before they are permitted to use the system. They should also be supervised at all times by another person who is also trained and competent.
