Passport Plus - Height

A cost-effective option for renewing Site Safety Cards, the Passport Plus - Height course builds on the knowledge introduced in the entry-level Passport courses. 

During this four-hour course, learners examine how to identify and control some of the key risks associated with working at height and develop an understanding of their health and safety responsibilities.

The Passport Plus - Height course is suitable for all workers, contractors and managers who may need to be aware of the risks of working at height.

With the Passport Plus - Height course you will:

  • Improve your knowledge in a targeted area by learning more about a specific health and safety topic
  • Advance your personal development by extending your health and safety knowledge
  • Improve health and safety awareness of everyone working on site

Please note there are no Unit Standards attached to the Passport Plus - Height course. The course renews Site Safety Cards, but does not renew height and harness training.
