Working at Heights Course Brisbane
What is defined as working at heights?
The Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011, Section 78 states; “The PCBU at a workplace, must manage risks to health and safety associated with a fall by a person from one level to another that is reasonably likely to cause injury to the person or any other person.”
However, the Queensland Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2017, Section 92 states; “(1) A coal mine’s safety and health management system must provide for controlling risk associated with working at heights at the mine. (2) If a person is required to work at a height greater than 2.4m, the system must provide for minimising the person’s risk of injury from falling.”
What does this mean?
