Every year falls from height cause the most deaths at work and the second highest number of major injuries.

This course is designed as an introduction to this key site safety topic – whether you work in Building and Construction, or are involved in any kind of installation or maintenance that requires you to work at a height.

Working at Height means working somewhere where there is the potential to fall from one level to a level below: It’s not just falling from a ladder or scaffolding, it’s also falling down holes and falling through fragile surfaces.

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 and the HSE guide to these regulations are very clear about what must be done to stay safe when working at height, and this training programme follows the laws and guidance to ensure that everyone knows how to stay safe.
