Sydney Women Breaking Barriers in Construction

Women in Construction
In June, some of our deadly Women’s Business 2nd Chance aspirants completed their Elevated Work Platforms (EWP) and Work Safely at Heights certifications!
We partnered up with Warali Wali Aboriginal Corp and Access Indigenous to create this opportunity for our ladies.
Empowering Indigenous women in traditionally male-dominated fields is not just a goal, it’s a reality! Together with Warali Wali, we are breaking barriers and shattering stereotypes, proving that the future is female in every industry!
The ladies have now gained two Nationally recognised statement of attainment in RIIHAN301E Operate Elevated Work Platforms and RIIWHS204E Work Safely at Heights giving them new opportunities for a better life and work prospects.
From mastering the controls to reaching new heights, these ladies are not just learning about EWPs, they’re redefining what’s possible!
A big thanks goes to Access Indigenous for the use of an EWP at their yard today. They also provided a safe environment for the ladies to learn how to operate these deadly machines.
The whole team at Access Indigenous in St Marys were so supportive of the ladies, making them feel at home and welcome at all times – having a great yarn with them about their future plans.
We also wish to thank National Training Organisation for their assistance with the statement of attainments and helping us make this all possible.
