Conducted in accordance with AS/NZS 1891.1 Safety Belts and Harnesses, AS/NZS 1891.4 Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices - Selection, use & maintenance and AS/NZS 4360 Risk Management. The two day course is designed to cover software and hardware PPE selection, maintenance & storage, operator personal inspections and periodic inspections as well as correct fitting of harnesses for work applications.
