    Regulators’ briefing on the new AS/NZS 1891 and height safety

    The big height safety standard, AS/NZS 1891, is set to change.

    Two senior regulators, together with a committee member of the revised standard – Workplace Access & Safety’s own Carl Sachs – will help workplaces prepare at an essential knowledge seminar on February 23 in Brisbane.

    Join WHS Queensland at this special height safety event hosted by the FMA to hear:

    –          What the regulator has put in the spotlight

    –          Everything FMs, architects and builders need to know about the AS revision

    –          Practical advice and tools to reduce risk and liability

    In just a morning, you’ll be fully briefed on how to deal with staff and contractors who must work at height, both during the construction of the building and its years of maintenance.
