This article shares other safety experience you should consider when hiring the services of a high rise painter. Read on to learn more.

1. Certification

Experience is the best teacher but you need to get certified to attest the skills you have acquired. Thus, it is important to look for high rise painters in South Brisbane who have CPC30611 – Certificate III in Painting and Decorating.

Ask for this certification from your chosen painter to ensure they are skilled in performing high rise painting jobs.

2. Affiliations

Enquire if they are associated with building and painter organisations such as  the following:


The SAYFA GROUP has long been working with architects, builders, OHS officers, building managers, height safety installers and system users. They are a leader in height safety, which offers products and systems that are compliant, user-friendly and reliable.

Thus, finding a high rise painter that is trained and accredited by SAYFA is a guarantee of their commitment to their painters’ safety whilst at work.

Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC)

Painters who are affiliated with QBCC practice professionalism, integrity, accountability, teamwork and customer focus in all their projects. This is part of the regulations they need to adhere to for them to remain a member.

Australian Corrosion Association Inc (ACA)

The ACA is a not-for-profit, membership Association which disseminates information on corrosion and its prevention or control by providing training, seminars, conferences, publications and other activities.

High rise painters who are members of this organisation value the integrity of their work, so they only use high-quality paints in all of their high rise painting jobs. This makes the completed project lesser prone to corrosion.

Master Painters Association (MPA)

MPA is a not-for-profit organisation that represents the interests of those operating within Queensland’s painting and decorating industry. Members encourage and recognise the highest standards of craftsmanship and ethical business practices.

3. Insured

The Queensland Home Warranty Scheme (QHWS) reminds all property owners that if the value of the painting job exceeds $3,300; which includes the materials, GST, and labour, an insurance premium has to be paid under QHWS.

This amount should be clearly written in the quoted painting job by a QBCC licensed contractor. If it doesn’t so, then it’s a signal that you are working with an unlicensed painter.


Check the credentials of high rise painters in South Brisbane before signing a job contract with them. Ensure you work only with highly qualified painters. Check if their members of the above organisations. Moreover, look at their current and previous clients to evaluate if their painting jobs are at par with your expectations.
