Work at Height
Work at height is defined as a height where a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. So does your organisation have employees that use stepladders, ladders, scaffolds, mobile elevating work platforms and work on or have to access structures or rooftops?
If so, then the Work at Height Regulations apply to you. Do your employees know about the risks they run in working at height and the systems of work that are required to keep them safe? Do they know how to identify obvious defects in workplaces they might visit while working at height?
If you answered ‘no’ to any of the above then your organisation may be in breach of the Work at Height Regulations and could be prosecuted or fined or be exposed to significant legal claims.
The provision of training is not a matter of choice or optional, it is an absolute legal requirement for your company. Falls from height account for one death every week. In addition, there are seven major injuries resulting in broken bones or being unable to carry out normal working duties every day due to a fall from height. Remarkably, two-thirds of people with major injuries have fallen from a height of fewer than two metres.
The Work at Height course from Praxis42 helps trainees understand the requirements of working safely by following the Health and Safety Executive Guidance notes – Safe use of Ladders and Step Ladders – An employers guide IND(G) 402 and The Work at Height Regulations – A Brief Guide’ AND(G) 401.
