Work Safely at Heights training

We go through risk controls with the workers, to manage the risk of falls, we learn required to follow the hierarchy of controls for work safely at heights.

The fall from heights hierarchy of control is:

Level 1: Eliminate the hazard by performing the work on the ground or on a solid construction.
Level 2: Use a passive fall prevention device; e.g. edge protection which prevents falls.
Level 3: Use a work positioning system; e.g. which limits movement and therefore minimises access to areas where a fall can occur.
Level 4: Use a fall arrest system e.g. a harness, which does not eliminate a fall, it only prevents the person falling to the ground.
Level 5: Use a ladder or implement administrative controls.
