We specialise in the design and installation of fall protection systems across a range of industries including construction, commercial, manufacturing, energy and more.
Alongside new system installations, HSE also offers NATA-accredited system recertification and maintenance inspections. These inspections are critical to ensuring that safety systems are kept in good working order and in compliance with Australian standards as well as work health and safety legislation.
Our training team offers a broad scope of courses covering working at heights, confined space, breathing apparatus, asbestos safety, rescue, emergency response and more. With training centres in Sydney, Melbourne and Dubbo, HSE can service clients across NSW and Victoria. We can also travel further afield, covering all of Australia.
Working at HSE
At HSE, we pride ourselves on providing a relaxed, comfortable working environment for our team. Our headquarters in Sydney features a large social space for informal catchups. As a company, we host a range of lunch and social events across the year.
One of our core values when it comes to our team is giving everyone the opportunity to explore any aspect of the business that takes their fancy. HSE offers numerous pathways for people to grow their careers and expand their skillset. Most of the leadership team cut their teeth working on-site as an installation technician or recertification assistant.
We are always looking for new team members
HSE is constantly on the lookout for people wanting to become height safety technicians. Technicians fill two main roles at HSE: installing height safety systems and performing recertification inspections.
Becoming an installation technician is a hands-on instruction to the world of height safety. The work can involve the installation of roof anchor points, construction of walkways, platforms and ladder systems as well as stringing of static lines and more.
Recertification technicians visit client sites and assess their existing fall protection systems for compliance against The Australian standards, work health and safety legislation and manufacturers’ installation instructions.
There are no formal qualifications for people wanting to become a height safety technician, the skills required to undertake the installation work are not typical of most building or construction trades. They include working at heights, undertaking rope access into difficult areas as well as working in confined spaces and areas of restricted access.
However, a background in building, construction or other trades is usually helpful as they bring transferrable skills in handling of tools and the building of platforms and ladder systems.
Becoming a height safety technician with HSE can also provide stability through full-time employment with well-defined career advancement pathways towards work supervisor and project management roles.
