Working at Height

Working at Height

Overview

Our working at height course has been created to encourage those who work at heights to do so safely. Falls from height are one of the biggest causes of workplace major injuries and fatalities, this is due to the lack of knowledge around working safely at height. Common causes are falls from ladders and through fragile roofs. Working at height means working in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. This course will teach you how to work at height safely and how you can ensure your colleagues are also working safely to avoid possible injuries.
