Edge Protection Training
Edge protection training provided by Australian Scaffolds & Access satisfies Australian Standards AS/NZS 4994.2:2009 Section 8 Training.
Section 8 Training states

Formal training or a certificate of competency may be required for scaffold erection, fall arrest systems, total restraint or mechanical access”.
Australian Scaffolds & Access provides training on a monthly basis in our yard at 71 Hobart Street, Riverstone NSW.

Competency and licensing
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.
