RTO certified height safety course introduced for operators of Gutter-Vac maintenance franchises
Reinforcing its commitment to height safety, Gutter-Vac has introduced a new RTO certified height safety course into its franchise system to further guarantee the safety of operators of its maintenance franchises.
Gutter-Vac has long held that the effectiveness of the company’s gutter cleaning system is reliant on a safe working environment for its franchisees.
In 1995 the company introduced a unique travel restraint anchorage device, the Ballantyne T-Bar, which when used in conjunction with its tethering system, allows operators of Gutter-Vac maintenance franchises to safely manoeuvre roofs.
All Gutter-Vac franchisees are trained in height safety and comply with national standards. With the introduction of the new height safety courses, operators will now also be certified by the Australian Quality Training Framework.
The new course has been specifically designed by Gutter-Vac, in conjunction with its related safety company Ballantyne Safety and registered training organisation Manitowoc Crane Group Australia, for workers using the Ballantyne Safety products.
The result is a robust training course that is industry specific and invaluable for the safe operation of the gutter clearing franchises.
Ballantyne Safety delivers the training course to operators of Gutter-Vac maintenance franchises weekly, and has received positive feedback from all course participants.
Stuart Ballantyne from Ballantyne Safety says that “course attendees have provided us with excellent feedback that our course is practical and relevant and has helped them go out onto a roof and feel safe.”
