Working at Height Training
Falling from a height is the most common cause of workplace-related injuries, accounting for 28% of accidents and fatalities at work. It’s mandatory that anyone performing workplace activities from a height is aware of the risks and how to use equipment safely and in compliance with the law.
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 requires that employees know about risk control measures and understand the methods to eliminate the risk of a fall. This Working at Height Training Course is particularly beneficial to anyone whose work may involve carrying out tasks from a height.
