Working at Height

Our RoSPA Approved course is aimed at anyone who undertakes work at height, or who employs people who regularly work at height.


Working at Height

The term work at height applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious ones like
working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds or stages to working alongside deep trenches. This is
because the crucial thing to understand about work at height is that it’s not how far you climb, but
how far you can fall. ‘Falls’ doesn’t just mean people falling from heights. If materials or equipment
fall, that will obviously present an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.

Course Summary

All working at height situations are covered by health and safety legislation.
Chief among these is the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
These regulations confer legal duties on employers and employees
to assess, control and minimise risks and hazards from work at height.
This course covers topics including the dangers of working at height, the regulations, the hierarchy of
controls, assessing risk and much more.

It’s vital to understand all this because as I’m sure you’ll know, working at height can be extremely
dangerous.

Please note that this is an awareness course only, if your duties include working at height you will
also need further practical training, you can get in touch with us to arrange this.
