DON’T GET CAUGHT USING A FAULTY SAFETY SYSTEM – IT WILL COST A LOT MORE THAN MONEY!

Height Safety Services have become more and more necessary as injuries and deaths caused by dangerous practices when working ‘at height’ have become an unacceptable part of the Australian workplace.

OH&S regulations have tightened Australia-wide as a result and to be compliant when carrying out duties on elevated walkways, building facades, rooftops and bridges is difficult.

RIGCOM Access operators are trained to exceed Australian Standards AS 1891 – Industrial Fall Arrest Systems and Devices, in each job they complete. A range of Height Safety Services are available through RIGCOM Access. These include:

RIGCOM’s Building Maintenance Teams are professionally trained and certified to provide the following applications:

  • A space of any volume which is not designed as a regular workplace
  • Has restricted means of exit and entry
  • May have inadequate ventilation
  • Is at atmospheric pressure during occupancy
  • May be prone to engulfment.

The Case of the Forgotten Assassin is based on an incident in which a well-experienced consultant died on an LNG carrier in a shipyard due to an explosion in a boiler steam drum following chemical cleaning procedures. Although aware of the hazard of explosive gases being generated during cleaning and the need for adequate ventilation, he did not use the appropriate procedures to mitigate the hazard.

  1. Static Line Systems: RIGCOM Access utilises world-class Uniline Safety, fall protection systems that can be fitted both horizontally and vertically to ensure maximum safety to Australian & Global Standards
  2. Rail Systems: RIGCOM Access can create custom solutions for modern building projects using Uniline Safety, aluminum rail fall protection systems that are robust for any project completed ‘at height’.
  3. Anchor Points: RIGCOM Access chooses from a range of height safety force management anchors based on the precise requirements of the project. Safety is always the top priority.
  4. Access Systems: RIGCOM Access is able to create custom systems to access all areas of facilities utilising a wide range of ladders, walkways and handrail products from Sayfa.

What Is Height Safety?

Height Safety is the system that prevents people from injuring themselves whilst working at height. The goal of a height safety is to develop a standard practice whereby businesses and individuals can rest assure that they are safe to carry out services from any height.

Australia is very stern on its Height Safety code and regulations and takes the new code of practice very seriously. To find out more about what you need to know about the new code of practice, fill in the opt-in form on the right hand side of this page.

Are there different kinds of Height Safety Systems?

There are many different kinds of Height Safety Systems. Height Safety Systems can be static lines, vertical lines, rail systems, and anchor points. Access ladders, Access walkways, Access cages are other forms of height safety as well.

How Do I know what is the Best Safety System for my facility?

It depends on where you are working really. There are so many variables, so it is hard to say exactly what kind of height safety system is needed. Because of this, RIGCOM Access provides a Height Safety Audit complimentary to diagnose your height safety needs.
