Working at Heights, What is it?

A workspace where, if the correct precautions are not taken a person has the potential to fall and, seriously injure themselves.

The serious bit

Falls from height are by far the highest cause of fatalities within the workplace.

In 2019/2020 the HSE reported that of 111 fatalities that occurred within the workplace, 29 of them were caused by falls from height.

It was also announced that over 5000 non-fatal injuries sustained by falls from heights were reported by employees under RIDDOR in the same year.

The legal bit on Working at Heights

If you can’t avoid working at heights, then there’s certain things you need to do to ensure you are complying with legislation and keeping your employees safe. All work must be suitably risk assessed and planned and careful consideration given to what type of working equipment suits each task.

The Work at Heights Regulations 2005 were introduced to safeguard those employees who cannot avoid working at heights and aid in preventing death/serious injury caused by a fall. As an employer you are responsible for ensuring all workers carrying out this type of activity are trained and competent enough to perform the task.
