Workplace Access & Safety: Specialists in Australian Height Safety Services

We provide inspection and certification of height safety systems so that clients and their contractors can safely access their roofs for routine maintenance purposes together with auditing and design consultation for Working at Heights systems.

The Importance of a Robust Height Safety System

The purpose of a height safety system is to minimise the risks associated with slips, trips, and falls while working at a height. Without robust health and safety process in place, you leave your organisation in danger of breaching workplace health and safety regulations. And, if you’re not providing a safe workplace for your employees and contractors, you run the risk of prosecution which may lead to heavy fines or even time in jail.

Our height safety services will ensure that you have a robust height safety system in place and that it is properly inspected. We offer everything from consultation to system design, overseeing the installation of working at heights equipment and ongoing training and inspection to ensure you comply with the Australian Standards and state regulations.

Are Your Height Safety Systems Really Safe?

Rules and regulations can sometimes seem like an impediment to getting the job done and running a successful business, but when it comes to a crucial subject such as working safely at heights, any responsible businessperson will acknowledge the regs are there to help, not hinder. The last thing you want is a fall that harms someone on your premises, so if those premises are on the lofty side, you must bite the bullet and get compliant, because compliance means safety.

The way to do this is to consult a height safety systems expert, and we at Workplace Access and Safety have been in this business since 1997, so we know what we’re doing.

The Vital Importance of Work at Height Safety

Fear of heights is a common phobia, and with good reason, but sometimes it has to be done and fortunately it is possible to work safely at heights – if you know what you are doing, use the correct equipment and follow all the procedures for health and safety working at height. It is a lot to take in, though, and that is why we started Workplace Access and Safety, specialising in this crucial area.
