Course Overview

Stormseal is an innovative, patented, Australian product designed to provide emergency storm damage protection for homes and businesses. This nationally recognised course covers theoretical and practical aspects of installing Stormseal together with refreshment of the Work Safely at Heights RIIWHS204D course.

During the course we will assist you to develop safe work method statements and risk assessments for installing Stormseal film whilst working at height. This course will enable you to comply with current WHS legislation with successful trainees receiving a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment.

Training is conducted at one of our purpose built training facilities. Stormseal installation at heights training is focused on Stormseal film installation together with fall prevention rather than fall arrest. It is designed to equip workers with the knowledge and skills to safely install Stormseal in any height situation, primarily being aimed at insurance works, mainstream construction, including residential & commercial as well as strata & maintenance.
