Training - Working at Height

With the Work at Height Regulations 2005 now established and the removal of the “two metre rule”, working at height has become a somewhat contentious issue in some quarters.

The scope of work at height has been broadened across all industry sectors as has the requirement to undertake a suitable and sufficient risk assessment on all work undertaken where there is a risk of injury as a result of a fall from height.

This working at height course is aimed at enabling those who work at height and those responsible for such work to understand what is required to be safe, i.e. legislative requirements and best practice.

Learning outcomes

This course will help candidates to minimise the risks of work at height, ensure that contractors employed work in a safe manner, and bring work procedures up to date with the requirements of this relatively new legislation.
