At SEHEZ Group the safety of our team is our number one priority and we are always working to improve our safety practices on site.
We recently completed Working at Height Training to improve our awareness and management of one of our greatest safety risks.
It wasn’t only our site-based workers completing the course. Our directors and administration team also completed the training to better understand the risks on site.
Working at heights is one of the highest risk activities in our industry and a leading cause of death and serious injury in workplaces across Australia.
In 2016 alone, there were 25 worker fatalities after a fall from a height and the construction industry accounted for over one third of fall-related fatalities.
The course was a hands-on experience for everyone, with practical exercises covering anchor points, fitting a harness, climbing and rescue situations.
Our site staff showed off their know-how and skills on the day, while those from the office were pushed out of their comfort zone.
The day brought everyone together, highlighting the everyday risks and the importance of staying safe.
