Working At Height

The Work at Height Regulations apply to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury. The regulations place duties on employers, the self-employed, and any person that controls the work of others, for example facilities managers or building owners who may contract others to work at height.

As an employer you must ensure that everyone involved in the work is competent or, if being trained, is supervised by a competent person.

This includes involvement in the organisation, planning, supervision, and the supply and maintenance of equipment.

Where other precautions do not entirely eliminate the risk of a fall occurring, you must, as far as it is reasonably practicable to do so, train those who will be working at height how to avoid falling, and how to avoid or minimise injury to themselves should they fall.

This ½ Day Course is a combination of theory and practical session and certification is via 1st Step Solutions as an in-house course.
