HSE states in 2013/14, falls from height were the most common cause of fatalities, accounting for nearly three in ten fatal injuries to workers (RIDDOR), with slips and trips being the most common cause of major injuries to employees with falls from height the next most common (RIDDOR).
The Working at Height Regulations reviewed in 2005 apply to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury.

Upon completion the delegates will have gained knowledge of:
