Working at Height

This course is for businesses that employ people who work at heights. You will learn everything you need to know that is in accordance with relevant regulations, including the Work at Height Regulations 2005.

Work at Height regulations applies to any situation where you or your workforce have the chance of falling from any height with the potential to cause injury. This could be working on top of a building or less obvious situations such as working next to an open trench that you could fall into.

If you do work in any situation such as the above, you should have a clear understanding of the relevant regulations or you could be putting your workforce in danger and be at risk of being fined or persecuted. This course is an excellent first step to understanding every aspect of working at height.

Note: if you do work at height you will also need to undertake practical training, which we can assist with or recommend training providers for you to work with.
