Australian Scaffolds offers height safety training for all customers that purchase Butlin Edge Protection equipment. We offer the training at no charge, ensuring compliance with Safe Work Australia guidelines. This training offers participants the opportunity to attain recognised competencies that meet the requirements of AS/NZS 4994.2:2009 Section 8 Temporary Edge Protection – Roof Edge Protection, Installation and Dismantling.

Section 8 Training states

“Persons involved in the installation of roof edge protection shall be trained in the correct method of installing and dismantling the specific type of equipment, with particular attention being paid to the method of connection to the wall structure or roof structure. Formal training or a certificate of competency may be required for scaffold erection, fall arrest systems, total restraint or mechanical access”.

Competency and licensing

The model WHS Regulations list the scaffolding work that requires a high-risk work licence.

If you are carrying out scaffolding work where there is a risk of a person or object falling more than four metres, you must hold a scaffolding high-risk work licence. For example, if you erect a small frame to clean the eaves of a house or to paint a ceiling, and the distance you might fall is four metres or less, you don’t need a high-risk work licence. Above all, for more detailed information on setting up and operating scaffolds, see our General guide for scaffolds and scaffolding work.
