In an industry where safety is the utmost priority, you need a team with the appropriate procedures, equipment and skills to help avoid potential risks.  In 2010 alone, falls were the single biggest cause of death in the Australian workplace. 

The current Occupational Health & Safety Act states that employers, controlling agents and the self-employed must ensure that all persons at the workplace are not exposed to health and safety risks.  From design through to the maintenance of a site, it is the responsibility of everyone involved to provide a safe work environment and in the event of an accident, the causes and liability are examined in detail.  

With this in mind, a strong focus on safe access at height is more than just suggested but mandatory and proper training is essential for any project. 

Unfortunately, when you contract out specialist work, you are only as good as the contractor you employ; and the market is flooded with poorly qualified access providers.  At SkyWalker, we ensure our team is trained to the highest standard and we proudly stand behind our 100% safety record. For this reason, we see ourselves as the only choice for your next project at height.

Here at SkyWalker, we want to partner at any time with your organisation to help with any project that you may have. Having a large team gives us the capacity to respond quickly, and deliver safe and effective outcomes within your timeline.
