Agoraphobia, claustrophobia, acrophobia are all irrational or abnormal fears that loom over people but not everyone. The first is an abnormal fear of open space and the second, about closed spaces. The third which is discussed here is about higher elevations. Just imagine one person has all there at the same time; where on earth could he exist? Sooner or later one gets over them, he or she will be able to fit in anywhere for work and mobility. But these are not the only ones that appear in the thesaurus’ list of fears. Some truly have unfounded reasons and many of these are due to a bad experience at certain circumstances in life. Psychologists may identify them as being in the conscious, subconscious or unconscious regions of the brain for which pertinent therapies are administered. Further classification puts them into either inhibition or fixation. The first can be an easier state to adjust whereas fixation takes an effort to rid of. At a conscious state they may not be evident but under certain circumstances they surface.
Someone who is affected with acrophobia will definitely shun working or even simply staying at highly physically elevated locations say at the 10th floor of an apartment. Count them off if they are to work in a project anything similar to that altitude, but do not mistake that as a bad attitude. Thus, while training personnel for such in Perth do get in touch with the VOC training programme at working at heights WA. Surely the course directors will have a special session of orientation for such willing but nervous entrants. At the other end, there are many who delight in climbing higher and higher. An altitude maniac will also be disappointed at this centre when there is not much for him to revel about because the maximum he could reach is as high as a building under construction.
Whatever the degree of fear maybe, advertisements such as working at heights WA will assure a good grounding for every student who enrols, for more info about working at heights course, visit http://www.nwtis.com.au/working-at-heights/. Besides, construction firms and supervisors are equipped with safety gears that harness the workers of tall ladders and cranes. Scaffolds and other structures that aid in tall building construction do carry signs, warning plates etc, just like on the streets for traffic. Every firm that undertakes infrastructure and engineering projects are compelled to adhere to occupational safety regulations. Protective head gear and gloves too are a must. Apart, visible warning signs have to be placed at the site on ground as well as at readable positions for people who walk by or vehicles who drive by.
It is no secret that a profession of any type will have its specific scruples and guidelines to accomplish what it is meant for. They say look before you leap but in here it is the opposite – think before you climb. It is the eyes that make one think and assume. Hence, let not the eyes convey a wrong message about the depth low below while you are on top. Fear is natural as a safety signal but cannot override to meaningful activities.
