Understanding Work at Height Legislation
In the UK, the Work at Height Regulations 2005 governs all work activities that involve a risk of falling from height. The regulations aim to prevent death and injury caused by falls and apply to all industries. Employers, self-employed individuals, and anyone who controls work at height must ensure that they follow the regulations.
Key aspects of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 include:
- Performing a thorough risk assessment before any work at height takes place
- Ensuring that employees are competent and properly trained
- Providing appropriate equipment and ensuring its proper use and maintenance
- Regularly reviewing and updating risk assessments, procedures, and training
