Working at Height

‘Working at height’ is defined as work in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance that could cause personal injury. Our training gives trainees the skills to take precautions to prevent falls, and to avoid additional risk.

The working at height regulations place the duty of preventing personal injury with the employer or those who control any work at height activity (such as facilities managers or building owners who contract others to work at height). As part of the regulations, you must ensure:

  • All work at height is properly planned and organised
  • Those involved in work at height are competent
  • The risks are assessed, and appropriate work equipment is used
  • The risks of working on or near fragile surfaces are properly managed
  • The equipment used for work at height is properly inspected and maintained

We design working at height training courses to match your specific requirements to make sure training meets your exact needs. Our working at height training team will check that your bespoke course meets all current legislative requirements and that you have the necessary tools and skilled personnel to work safely and efficiently at all times.
