Working at Height


Two in every ten workplace fatalities involve a fall from height. They also account for over 4,000 major injuries a year.

This awareness course is designed to help identify and reduce the risks of working at height. It explores collective and personal protection, highlighting how they work and how they must be prioritised.

There is a dedicated section covering working at height equipment such as ladders, scaffolds and foot stools. The course also includes a section specifically designed for people working on
a roof.
