This means if you are working at heights on a ladder, a roof, scaffold, cherry picker, scissor lift, boom lift, vertical lift, or other elevating work platform, the best way to be covered is to do a Working at Heights course.
If you're seeking employment in resources, construction or infrastructure, this Nationally Recognised Training course will equip you with the skills and practical experience to competently and safely work from heights to industry standards.
