Course Overview

Participants will learn to complete JSA’s and risk assessments. Our training is very workplace specific. We will look at your risk assessment processes and the hazards that are specific to your workplace. We will cover different methods of risk controls and the various consequences and categories of risk. We will examine the hierarchy of hazard controls as well as devising tailored risk reduction strategies.

During the course we will complete several practical risk assessments and look at different methods for risk elimination and risk control. We will complete many of the practical tasks in a group environment on actual work tasks that company personnel undertake.

I completed the EWP under 11 metre course yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it… Phil the instructor was brilliant. He held the class well and he spoke from experience not just from time teaching a course. He was hard but fair in the assessment practical and you kinda have to be considering the work that students will be undertaking upon their completion. Facilities were top notch and nothing was too much trouble. All staff that I came into contact with were polite and very professional! I would certainly recommend Pinnacle Safety and Training for anyone looking at completing industry specific training and certification and I will certainly use them again when choosing my next course.
