In 2003/04 falls from height accounted for 67 fatal accidents at work and nearly 4000 major injuries. They remain the biggest cause of workplace deaths and one of the main causes of major injury.
The Working at Height Regulations introduced in 2005 apply to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury.
This Working at Height Risk Assessment course considers the effects of the regulations and focuses on implementing safe systems of work when working at height.
Upon completion the delegates will have gained knowledge of:
- What is working at height?
- Legal requirements for complying with the Regulations
- Causes of injuries and avoidance
- Control measures
- Risk Assessments in practice
The training enables the delegates to be competent to undertake a Work at Height Risk Assessment upon completion.
