Height Safety & Installed Systems
The law in Australia states that the person in control of
a premises are responsible for all hazards and have the
responsibility of assessing and eliminating or controlling
risks. The various individual state regulations specify that
the controller(s) of a premises must ensure that safe access
is provided to all parts of a place of work to which a person
may require access and from which a person may fall. This
responsibility covers employees, visitors and contractors.

potential risk of injury with solutions being selected or prioritised
within a six level “Hierarchy of Control” shown below.
