Despite all the major improvements made in the design of fall protection equipment in recent years, falls from heights are still a very significant occupational safety issue. The most common falls are due to people falling at height from roofs and ladders.
Falls from roofs and ladders are also one of the leading causes of occupational death. The most common type of accidents recorded at construction sites are due to falls. Many of these accidents from height could have been avoided if the correct equipment had been used or height safety procedures had been followed.
There are some very good reasons for creating a safe working environment at height for your workers. Helping to prevent your workers from getting injured a workplace accident is always a good idea. Millions of dollars are spent every year in helping people to recover from workplace accidents.
Any accident in the workplace will have a financial impact on the business and can also affect productivity and profits. From a legal standpoint it is also very important that you are complying will all current Australian Standards and regulations. Failure to do so can result in civil and criminal prosecutions and a possible conviction.
We are very experienced in all aspects of Height Safety, so if you want to minimise the risk to your workers when working at height and to protect your business, then you should call Off The Wall today.
EXPERTS IN HEIGHT SAFETY
Height safety needs to be an important priority for the management of a safe working environment. Under current legislation, all maintenance work carried out on buildings that is higher than 2 metres needs a height safety system.
This legislation applies to apartment blocks, commercial buildings and educational facilities. Don’t wait for an accident to happen before implementing or updating your height systems and safety plan. Your prompt action will save lives and prevent serious injury.
Some of the most common causes of accidents happening at height include:
- Workers not using the required fall protection equipment. A safety plan needs to be rigidly enforced and all workers must comply with it.
- Workers not using the required fall protection equipment correctly. More workers are using the required equipment but it’s not being used correctly.
- Safety equipment being used way beyond its useful life or expiry date. Safety equipment needs to be inspected regularly and removed once it has reached its expiry date.
- Inadequate safety training and communication. This is a significant contributor to safety equipment being used incorrectly, if it is used at all.
- Unsuitable anchorages. A fall cannot be arrested if the wrong anchorage has been used.
If you have work or maintenance that needs to be carried out at height, then you need to implement a safety plan that complies with all Australian Standards and regulations.
Off The Wall have a wealth of experience in height safety and know what needs to be done in order to protect your workers and ensure that your height safety systems comply with the required height safety standards.

They will look at all height safety equipment such as ladders, fall-arrest systems, guardrails and all anchor points and photograph and document any hazards or potential areas of concern.
The completed audit report will contain the location of each installation or piece of equipment, its risk factor and the report will also include its findings along with any safety recommendations.
Once any remedial work has been completed on the safety equipment and installations mentioned in the audit, we will provide you with a certificate of compliance along with a report which contains all audit and certification work carried out.
