COURSE SUMMARY

UETDRRF003 – Perform Pole Top Rescue covers the skills and knowledge required to utilise pole top rescue procedures as an emergency procedure required in the workplace. It specifies the mandatory requirements of rescue from a pole top and how they apply in the context of transmission, distribution and rail work functions. It encompasses responsibilities for rescue, health, safety and risk management processes at all operative levels and adherence to safety practices as part of the normal way of doing work.

Pole Top Rescue training is designed to train persons working at height on poles that support overhead electrical lines, to affect a rescue of a work mate who is now suspended in their PPE. This unit will require the participant to climb the pole past the victim, establish a rescue system on the pole and the worker, release the worker from the device they are suspended by, and control lower that person to the ground.
