With falls from heights continuing to be one of the primary causes of workplace injuries in NSW, how do you know if the technicians and tradesmen working on your roofs and elevated areas are doing so safely? It has never been more important to ensure the safety systems used to protect workers at height are suitable, in good condition and compliant with Australian Standards.

Falls from heights has been identified as a high impact harm under Action Area II of the SafeWork NSW Work Health and Safety Roadmap to 2022, due to the high number of workplace fatalities and serious injuries that occur as a result of this mechanism.

Understanding your responsibilities as building management, Strata or residents is key to keeping everybody safe, and it can often be difficult to understand what the WHS laws obligate us to do. What qualifications are required? Are Working at Heights Permits needed? These are just some of the questions we regularly help our clients answer.
